ALISO VIEJO, Calif., June 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Buy.com, The Internet Superstore™, today announced the launch of its greatly enhanced mobile site with the addition of full search and checkout capabilities and a faster, simpler platform that delivers an improved mobile shopping experience.  Since the Beta mobile shopping site went live in May, the company has seen traffic increase more than nine times previous levels.  

Online shoppers can now visit Buy.com from any mobile phone, browse 5.3 million product selections and make purchases using their favorite payment methods offered by Buy.com.  Shoppers also can watch thousands of BuyTV product videos and Top 10 countdowns in popular categories to have the richest shopping experience prior to purchase.

Previously, the mobile site only offered limited product search capabilities and pricing information.  Despite the partial offering, Buy.com already was ranked as one of the top 10 mobile commerce players, according to Nielsen Company and Internet Retailer, thanks to Buy.com's wide selection of available products and low prices.

"The rapid growth we've seen in mobile shopping in such a short period of time shows that people want to shop when they want, where they want," said Buy.com CEO and President Neel Grover.  "To meet this demand, we made our mobile platform more robust and faster, yet very simple to use, giving shoppers easy access to the best deals online wherever they may be – car, restaurant or physical store."

In addition to Buy.com's vast product selection and low prices, mobile shoppers also can access the company's retail Marketplace, which currently features more than 11.5 million product listings from thousands of qualified third-party retailers.
