This week, Market America | SHOP.COM was named the fastest-growing mobile commerce retailer, according Internet Retailer’s newly released 2014 Mobile 500.

The Internet Retailer 2014 Mobile 500 analyzes the mobile commerce sites of the 500 leading retail, ticketing and travel companies, and breaks down the key details and operating metrics of each one.

Market America – coming in at No. 250 in the magazine’s rankings – will bring in nearly $7.5 million in sales through its mobile channels – including its SHOP.COM app available on both the iPhone and Android platforms.

That type of growth – an increase of nearly 600% compared to 2012 – ranks Market America | SHOP.COM ahead of other longtime mobile retailer giants. Steve Ashley, Vice President of Mobile and Social Products for Market America | SHOP.COM, attributed the company’s mobile growth to an expanded product inventory and continued investment into its mobile applications, which account for one-fifth of its mobile commerce sales.
