Black Friday, Cyber Monday…now add “Mobile Sunday” to the list of super-hot days for retailers. eBay released metrics that showed a peak in mobile sales for the second year in a row.

This past ‘Mobile Sunday’ (the second Sunday in December) was eBay’s top-grossing day for sales made using mobile devices.  From eBay’s site:

“In the U.S., eBay mobile (Gross Merchandise Value) was up 38 percent on “Mobile Sunday” over Cyber Monday 2010. Clothing and accessories topped the list of most-sold items among U.S. shoppers buying with their phones, with the top five U.S. states by sales volume including California, Pennsylvania, Florida, Indiana, and Ohio.”

Reports say mobile shopping in the U.S. peaked that day between the hours of 1:00 pm and 4:00 pm ET, averaging over 9,500 transactions per hour.

Since the introduction of eBay’s first mobile application in July 2008, consumers have bought or sold nearly 30 million items via mobile means.
