‘Desktop is on the decline’: 70 percent of online retailer Boohoo’s traffic is now mobile
Boohoo, an online retailer for fast, affordable, fashion, has shifted to become mobile-first.
Boohoo’s business is dependent on customers frequently checking in for new product launches. Five hundred new products debut on the site each week, with about 100 pieces available for each.

Lead time from product design to launch is about four to six weeks, according to Carol Kane, CEO of Boohoo.com.
