Mobile Commerce

Mobile commerce is the purchasing process via mobile end devices, like smartphones or tablets. Whether responsive design or native app: online shops which are adjusted for small displays are a requirement for success in mobile commerce. Cross-platform shops are also characterised by simplified use. QR codes, beacons, and NFC (near field communication) complete the alternative user access to online business. When it comes to mobile commerce, you also have to take note of the target group, which can differ from that of a classic online shop. Smartphones are increasingly becoming interfaces between online- and stationary trade.
