With the advancement of the smartphone, mobile shopping has become the latest shopping trend to sweep the nation and world. Anyone with a cell phone can shop online no matter where they are.
Mobile shopping is a booming industry not only for consumers but also for retailers. It is another outlet for a retailer to reach out to their consumers via mobile-friendly sites, text updates, and smartphone applications. Consumers now have the ability to shop anytime, anywhere regardless of their accessibility to retail outlets or personal computers. Getting what you need can only be a few finger taps away.
Although mobile shopping is a multi-million dollar industry that continues to grow each year, many consumers remain hesitant about purchasing items via their mobile devices. While convenience can certainly not be argued, critics and users alike are skeptical of how secure purchasing something on their mobile devices really is. Similar to online shopping, users should make mobile shopping purchases from sites they know. As mobile shopping continues to grow, so does the advanced security features many merchants are implementing into their mobile-friendly sites and applications. Just like the smartphone, it won’t be long before mobile shopping is a part of our everyday lives.
