The current global trend indicates the increase of Internet traffic for mobile phones, pads and tables.  Many people today spend a free minute just surfing on the Internet, searching for some information, things or events.

The phrase Mobile Commerce was originally coined in 1997, to mean “the delivery of electronic commerce capabilities directly into the consumer’s hand, anywhere, via wireless technology.” Many choose to think of Mobile Commerce as meaning “a retail outlet in your customer’s pocket.”

According to BI Intelligence in January 2013, 29% of mobile users have now made a purchase with their phones. Walmart  estimated that 40% of all visits to their internet shopping site in December 2012 were from a mobile device. Bank of America predicts $67.1 billion in purchases will be made from mobile devices by European and U.S. shoppers in 2015.

We can improve internet sellers’ lives and display their products to customers, no matter what device they use to access the eShop. (more…)
