Most if not all shoppers travel with their mobile phones handy. They are already using their smartphones to research products, redeem coupons, and pay for things both online and offline. With mobile, it is now possible to track your customers from the first time they interact with your brand to the actual moment when they make a purchase.
From its humble beginnings in Helsinki in 1997, Mobile Commerce continues to grow and evolve as a viable means of simplifying the way we do business in today’s world. Reports from ComScore show that 38% of U.S. mobile users have already used their smartphones to make a purchase.
It has long been known that consumers use their tablets to research purchases. But tablets are also used to complete purchases, much more so than smartphones. Tablets are actually the driving force behind the rise in mobile device transactions due to the ease of use and shopping experience on these devices.
Near Field Communication
Instead of paying with cash, check, or credit cards, a consumer can use a mobile phone to pay for a wide range of services. Near Field Communication (NFC) is used mainly to pay for purchases made in actual stores or transit services. All you need to do is tap your phone to an NFC terminal at checkout and your phone then sends payment info to the terminal. Voila! A cashless transaction. แทงบอลที่ดีที่สุด

As amazing as the future of Mobile Commerce may seem there are still many obstacles which need to be overcome before it can be truly considered successful. The typical consumer might be reluctant to switch from using cards or cash as a means of making payments and unwilling to store sensitive information on their phone. Furthermore, a vast number of consumers are still not even in possession of a smartphone and those who are lack enough information and instructions on how to use the technology. There is also great risk if one’s phone is lost, broken, stolen or if the battery suddenly dies during a transaction. E-COMMERCE APP Hamburg
