mRetailers: Gear up for the upcoming holiday shopping season, now!

16 11 2012

This holiday shopping season, retailers offering mobile apps have made a smart move. While nearly 86 million US consumers are already using smartphones to shop, this holiday season is set to see even higher numbers from mCommerce. From special QR codes to price matching via smartphones, retailers will rely on the latest technologies to deliver discounts right into the hands of shoppers. And while smartphones has been the only device most consumers carried in the past, they’re now armed with tablets that can provide an even more engaging shopping experience. As retailers offer apps that mimic flipping through physical mail-order catalogs and one-click purchasing options through merchants like PayPal and Google, the tablet is set to be the ultimate experience in holiday shopping this season.

Eighty-two percent of tech-savvy mobile application users say there are major benefits to shopping on smartphones and tablets, according to new data issued by app technology provider Apigee. Bargain hunting reigns supreme: Half of respondents cite browsing for deals wherever they are among m-commerce’s biggest advantages, 48 percent name in-store pricing comparison opportunities, 38 percent point to opportunities to redeem digital coupons, and 27 percent cite the potential to earn in-app loyalty points.

Mobile coupons and discount codes will continue to play a role in consumerism, especially around this time, when the cost of gifting can add up. Many retailers are planning to increase the number of deals, especially those through mobile coupons. And while consumers are expected to take their time to find the best possible price for the holiday wish list items, most savvy holiday shoppers will consult their smartphones for price-comparisons and the latest deals, wherever they may be.

So, as a retailer who has extended its brand to the mobile channel, is your app or mobile website ready to handle the increase in traffic this holiday season? Keep in mind that one bug, glitch, crash or performance issue can immediately drive customers to shop at competing outlets. For mobile retailers, I suggest gearing up your mobile apps and websites for the upcoming holiday season NOW before it’s too late!

Hi, I just wanted to provide you with a brief suggestion and let you recognize that a few illustrations or photos are generally
not running properly within your web page. I’m not sure why nevertheless I
suppose it could be a linking complication. I
had tried this in 2 different web browsers and both still
show an identical effect.

Link exchange is nothing else however it is simply placing the other person’s
blog link on your page at appropriate place and other person will also
do similar for you.

An impressive share! I have just forwarded this onto a colleague who has been conducting a little
homework on this. And he actually ordered me breakfast due to the fact that
I found it for him… lol. So allow me to reword
this…. Thank YOU for the meal!! But yeah, thanks for spending time
to talk about this subject here on your internet site.

ll probably also find that shopping catalogues also offer a big range of clothing and
stock more sizes than a high street shop does, giving you a much better choice than in-store.
Look for stones with a rating of colorless
or near-colorless for diamond solitaire engagement rings that will maintain their beauty for a
lifetime. Online shopping is the demand of todays modern time.
