Men Are Bigger Mobile Shoppers Than Women

As the iPhone 5 enters the marketplace, uSamp decided to look at the mobile shopping habits of 1,100 men and woman, ages 18 – 75. The survey was conducted using uSamp Mobile, a platform that blends uSamp’s mobile survey technology with their targeted audience to gain consumer and business insights.

According to the results, 12% of woman find themselves shopping on their mobile devices while in the waiting room at the doctor’s office. On the other hand, 25% of men most frequently shop on mobile while at the office.

In addition to the buying habits of men and woman while shopping on mobile, the survey took a look at how mobile devices are being used in purchase decisions. Ninety-one percent of males have scanned a product barcode with their mobile device vs. 85% of woman. The survey found that men and woman who scan barcodes with mobile are shopping at these types of stores:
