Mobile shopping volume was 9.32 trillion won, surpassing by far the money spent through online shopping on PCs.
Online shopping also accounted for a record breaking 28.6 percent of overall retail sales, up 7.7 percent from the same time last year.
While food delivery services and ready-made meals helped drive sales up as people spent more time at home following a spike in COVID-19 cases, coupled with a long monsoon season, travel and leisure services took a hit.
