However, the data also shows that that this amazing growth in revenue from mobile comes from two main factors:

  • Transactions from mobile are up 77%
  • The average order value of those transactions is up by 79%

All of this data shows that Pinterest users are acting on the information they get from Pinterest and this is translating into shopping intent. They aren’t just browsing on their mobile devices, they are shopping, researching, and buying products.

As mobile use of Pinterest continues to grow (currently about 75% according to Pinterest), clearly there is a major opportunity for brands to use this channel to attract customers. The key for the brand will be to make sure that their websites are optimized not only for mobile, but also to support pinning.
