« on: April 15, 2014, 12:14:44 AM »
U.S. retail sales grew 4.2 percent from $4.35 trillion in 2012, and online sales accounted for a significant portion of overall retail growth. E-commerce sales came in at $263.3 billion, up 16.9 percent, or $40 billion, in 2013 compared to 2012. While brick-and-mortar sales still make up the vast majority of the retail market, e-commerce sales are increasing much faster.

In 2013, mobile commerce, which includes products and services ordered on mobile devices, including tablets, increased 70 percent to reach $42.13 billion.

E-commerce sales will grow 15.5 percent this year to $304 billion, up from $263.3 billion in 2013. Mobile commerce will continue to soar, with an increase of 37.2 percent to $57.8 billion this year from $42.1 billion in 2013.

By 2017, eMarketer projects total U.S. retail sales of $5.55 trillion. That figure includes $491.5 billion of e-commerce sales and $132.69 billion in m-commerce sales.

Thank you for sharing your insights and skepticism on this matter. It's true that the shift towards mobile dominance varies across different websites and industries. While mobile usage is undoubtedly growing, e-commerce transactions on desktops and laptops still remain a significant portion of the pie.

The balancing act between desktop and mobile development is indeed a challenge, especially for smaller teams or businesses. Prioritizing resources while ensuring a high-quality experience on both platforms is crucial. The adaptive design approach, while not perfect, does provide a compromise to address the mobile usability concern without the overhead of a fully separate mobile site.

As for the non-free mobile template you mentioned, it could potentially offer additional features, customization options, or optimizations beyond the adaptive code. It might be worthwhile to explore and assess whether the investment in a non-free template aligns with your website's specific goals and user base.

Speaking of optimization and resources, if you're looking for deals, the could be useful for finding cost-effective solutions for various aspects of your e-commerce venture.

Thank you again for sharing your perspective and initiating this thoughtful discussion.
