Riding on the exponential growth in m-commerce, India's leading online fashion platform Myntra.com on Friday shared that 90% of its traffic is being generated through mobile devices. Close to 85% of this traffic is driven by Android, iOS and Windows platforms. Interestingly, over 50% of the mobile traffic comes from Tier II & III cities.

With over 150 million smartphone users as of 2014, and penetration of mobile phones expected to reach 45% with a whooping 520 million users by 2020, mobile is radically transforming consumer's shopping behavior.
