Key learnings from the data show a 12% increase in total sales, which supports our hypothesis this would once again be a peak sales period in the US. Drilling down to specific advertiser verticals, Books advertisers saw the greatest uplift, with a 190% increase in revenue generated during back to school.
Examining publisher activity for the period, there was a 69% increase in average order value (AOV) for transactions made with a coupon and a 38% increase in total sales generated by discount and promotion publishers. Additionally, mobile continued to have its hold on market share activity, with 23% of total transactions occurring on smartphones.
