According to a report by Invesp, more than 2 billion people globally use their mobile devices for online shopping. Also, Statista reports 53.9% of all U.S retail e-commerce is expected to be generated via m-commerce, by 2021.

Mobile Commerce or M-commerce looks promising to be a dominating e-commerce force in the upcoming years.

With the increase in the number of mobile users, e-retailers have started looking out for ways to optimize their e-commerce store for mobile users and one such way is the implementation of Google AMP.

What is Google AMP?
