Who are the main leaders in terms of mobile commerce?

Currently 20% of PayPal global purchases are from mobile devices with this forecast to reach 42% by 2016.

China, Turkey and the United Arab Emirates are the countries in the world where most mobile purchasing takes place and these consumers tend to be in the 18-34 age bracket.

European countries and South America also are markets where m-commerce is expanding.


24/7 industry

Since the advent of mobile devices, the psychology behind consumerism has changed and consumers are adopting a 24/7 approach to consumerism. Retail is no longer something which is kept for weekends or evenings. The increasing presence of mobile devices and specialist retail apps means that most people are constantly in a consumer mood, able to make their purchase at any moment of the day from their mobile device. Seasonal sales are in particular, an attractive incentive for purchasing for m-commerce users.

Some interesting facts

Modern day spice routes characterised by the increase in e-commerce are a well-known global trend. However technology is constantly evolving and there is widespread use of mobile devices and apps in the retail sector. It is vital therefore that apps and websites are localised by translating them into different languages, in order to achieve commercial success overseas.

Whether you are for or against the use of mobile devices and apps, there is no doubt that the growing trend for m-commerce and retailers need to stay on the ball if they are going to use such devices and apps to expand into international markets.

Generally, smaller consumer goods tend to be purchased via mobile devices and apps, for example, clothes, beauty products, flowers and food than larger goods for example soft furnishings etc. The latter will more likely be researched more via a mobile device than actually purchased in store for obvious reasons.

Although credit card security on mobile devices is an area where some people feel wary, there is no doubt that anti-fraud technology is working hard to resolve this issue.
