Mobile commerce firm teams with Shopify

Apptive and Shopify join forces to promote mobile commerce among merchants

Apptive, a mobile commerce and management platform, has announced that it has entered into a new partnership with Shopify, an e-commerce firm. Through this new partnership, the two organizations aim to make it easier for consumers to shop through Shopify with their mobile devices. Shopify has become quite popular with merchants that are working on developing a strong online presence. These merchants are finding that engaging with mobile consumers is becoming increasingly important as more people begin to shop exclusively from their smartphones and tablets.
