What are the biggest challenges for mobile commerce?

Recently, more and more has been said about m-commerce. However, this is not only a temporary trend. Analysts predict that in the coming years, mobile commerce will gradually replace the traditional one.

Did you know that there are 3.9 billion smartphone users worldwide (according to Statista data) and just over 2 billion personal computers (Forrester Research data)? It’s easy to draw conclusions, isn’t it?

Today’s customers are well aware of the opportunities created by new technologies and want to take advantage of them. Already in 2020, m-commerce was responsible for 65% of global sales in electronic channels.

If you are active in the e-commerce industry, you must be aware of the changing expectations of consumers. What challenges must you and your company be ready for?

Simplifying the buying process

Shopping on smartphones is becoming more and more convenient and faster for customers. However, this only happens when the creator of the application or website takes care of it. 

It is obvious that some operations are more difficult to perform with mobile devices than with computers or laptops. The buying process must therefore be shortened to the minimal number of steps.

Try to find original solutions thanks to which your company will stand out among the competitors. 

Mobile payment methods

Bank transfers are fine, however mobile application users prefer to use more convenient payment methods. Payments by codes or texts, mobile wallets, and even cryptocurrencies – this is how modern clients want to pay.

You must ensure that you offer such methods in your app.

Customer service in new channels

Customers using mobile applications will be reluctant to contact companies via the hotline or e-mail. After all, why, when they can do it much easier?

Instead, you can offer them the ability to communicate via chat or messengers – the channels they already use on their smartphones.
