PayPal: What Are You Wearing?

More than two-thirds of Americans wear sweats or pajamas while shopping online or on mobile devices. How do we know this? Because PayPal asked, according to eCommerceBytes.

The eBay payments unit commissioned a survey of about 1,018 U.S. adults between Dec. 5-7, 2014, which found that 69 percent of those queried like to do online shopping from bed. Among other locations, 17 percent said they had shopped using a mobile device while in a restaurant, 10 percent said they shopped during Thanksgiving dinner, and 15 percent admitted to shopping for the holidays from a restroom.

Overall, online shopping is used by 52 percent of those surveyed. One-third of the survey's respondents said they had used their mobile device to help in some way with their holiday shopping, and 49 percent specifically use a mobile device to research deals while in-store.

Surprisingly, 43 percent said they don't do last-minute shopping. Of those who do, 10 percent admitted to shopping for themselves. And while 30 percent of people said they did most of their holiday shopping after Cyber Monday, only 5 percent shopped on the actual "cyber holiday."

Finally, the survey found that 9 percent of respondents said they turned to mobile shopping so they'd have more time for cocktails.
