Mobile commerce continues to flourish in many prominent markets throughout the world
Mobile commerce has become quite popular throughout the world. Many consumers are using their smartphones and tablets to purchase products online, but there is still relatively little support for in-store mobile payments. As consumers become more mobile-centric, the demand for in-store payment systems that accept mobile transactions is growing rapidly. Companies like CorFire aim to accommodate this demand by providing retailers with the technology they need to engage mobile consumers. Mozido is well situated to assist in this endeavor.
Mozido helps retailers embrace the mobile space with its agnostic technology and services
One of Mozido’s major victories in the past is convincing traditional retailers to begin implementing mobile commerce services. The company has helped the retail industry become more mobile friendly, and it has managed to avoid some of the challenges associated with competition by being agnostic regarding payment platforms. Mozido supports mobile payments made from any platform, allowing its clients to embrace their favored payment method without having to worry about whether or not it is supported by the company’s technology.
