"The second quarter of 2013 saw a healthy acceleration in the online spending
growth rate to nearly 16 percent on the strength of a particularly
enthusiastic April from consumers," said comScore chairman Gian Fulgoni.
"Increased spending growth for the quarter not only reflects the long term
share shift towards digital commerce, but also the near-term signals of
sustained improvement in consumer sentiment. This strength is particularly
significant since the second quarter tends to be seasonally lighter for
e-commerce, and, as such, represents a positive indicator for the back half of
the year."

Other highlights from Q2 2013 include:

  o The top-performing online product categories were: Apparel & Accessories,
    Digital Content & Subscriptions, Sport & Fitness, Consumer Packaged Goods
    and Home & Garden. Each category grew at least 19 percent vs. year ago.
  o E-commerce accounted for 9.6 percent of consumers' discretionary spending,
    the highest second quarter share on record.
  o Consumers spent an additional $4.7 billion in mobile commerce (m-commerce)
    via smartphones and tablets, an increase of 24 percent over the past year.
  o Apparel & Accessories was the highest grossing m-commerce product category
    with more than $700 million in Q2 sales, followed by Computer Hardware and
    Digital Content & Subscriptions.
