Thanks John and welcome everyone to our first earnings call as a public company. We had a very strong second quarter with accelerating revenue growth that was twice the rate of year-over-year for e-commerce, revenue came in at 16 million, an increase of 29% from a year ago, core revenue grew 31% from a year ago. We believe we’ve been establish ChannelAdvisor as a leader in a large under served market that is still in its very early days. Our results for the second quarter reflect growing demand from online retailers for a robust cloud based platform in an environment of continuing secular growth of e-commerce.
Since this is our first call as a public company. I want you to take couple of minutes to provide you some background on ChannelAdvisor including the secular and business trends they are enabling us to capitalize on a significant opportunity in front of us. ChannelAdvisor is a leading provider of software and service solutions that enable online retailers automate, optimize and expand sales. Through a single integrated platform, we enable online retailers to reach buyers across three types of e-commerce channels.
Market places, comparison shopping engines and paid search. Many of you are already familiar with the secular trend of retail sales moving online, this is creating an e-commerce market that gain share and are now pacing the growth of overall retail sales. [For sure] expects that global e-commerce bidding will grow at a compounded annual growth rate of 15% to 1.1 trillion from 2011 to 2016. And in the second quarter e-commerce growth of 15% was consistent with the long term trend. Despite all the growth we experience in e-commerce online sales are still 18% of total retail sales in U.S. so plenty of room to be one in the secular trend. We track five new innovations that are driving the growth of e-commerce, the first of these is proliferation of online market places as a result of what I would like to call the Amazon affect.
Amazon third party market place has been so successful the numerous other retailers and non retailers such as Best Buy, Sears, Wal-Mart, Groupon and Newegg have all created their own third party market places. Next is mobile or local, for anticipates mobile commerce is going from $6 billion in 2011 to $31 billion in 2016 which represents a 39% compounded annual growth rate driving new intersections with local commerce such as the e-Bay Now project.
We expect the rising growth of social network such as Facebook, Twitter and (inaudible) be another long term e-commerce driver even though they are over lapping much today. For example in the second quarter both Pinterest and Twitter announce e-commerce oriented features initiative. The fourth way of innovation that we track is the global e-commerce opportunity.
