Desktop computers may still be the device of choice for ordering this holiday season, but that mobile device in your pocket is gaining ground.

Americans will spend an estimated $51.7 billion using their smartphones in 2019, a 37% increase from last year’s $37.7 billion, according to an Adobe Analytics report. Shopping from a desktop will total $81.7 billion, up from $77.9 billion last year.
