Buy buttons and single-click tech are set to be the next tools to drive commerce on smart phones. According to eMarketer Inc., a New York City-based market-research firm, smart phones will reach $27.7 billion in retail mobile commerce this year. eMarketer Inc. predicts sales will increase to $36.6 billion in 2016. By the end of 2019, mobile commerce is expected to make up nearly $41 billion in annual retail sales. If you want to experience increased sales, consider adopting mobile commerce solutions.
Merchants across a variety of industries are excited about mobile commerce as a growing number of consumers decide to complete shopping transactions with their smart phones. Since consumers have become accustomed to searching for the items they want on mobile phones, adding buy buttons and single-click tech allow consumers to finish their shopping journey. eMarketer Inc. explains that consumers are making more purchases on smart phones due to larger screens, and the integration of buy buttons with social-media networks like Pinterest and Facebook.
Buy buttons import product information from retailers and streamline user purchases. Over the past few months buy buttons have gained steam, as multiple technology companies began rolling them out onto application programming interfaces (APIs) to integrate with merchant operations. Single-click checkouts are geared to increase mobile commerce. Not only will it make shipping more simple and faster for users, single-click will eliminate the need to enter billing and shipping data on small mobile screens. There will also be technology which uses stored data like card credentials so that consumers won’t have to re-enter credit card numbers.
This week PayPal Holdings Inc. and Visa Inc. announced single-click development efforts. PayPal’s One Touch technology is in 13 new markets in Australia and Europe. Visa’s Checkout service is now available in 16 countries with 6 million registered users, and a 92% rise in registrations this year.
