AnywhereCommerce, a Canadian mobile commerce firm, has entered into a new partnership with Prosa, a provider of merchant services based in Mexico. Through this partnership, the two companies will work to make mobile payments more accessible to consumers throughout Mexico and give retailers and merchants the ability to facilitate mobile commerce. The concept of mobile commerce has been growing more attractive to consumers as more people get their hands on smartphones and tablets. AnywhereCommerce and Prosa are keen to take advantage of the growing demand for mobile commerce services.

Prosa to deploy payment systems from AnywhereCommerce

Prosa will deploy AnywhereCommerce’s aCommerce Gateway platform, which is capable of accepting payments from credit and debit cards as well as mobile devices. Prosa will also be deploying a range of mobile point-of-sale devices from AnywehreCommerce. Merchants can use these systems to accept payments being made from smartphones and tablets. Both companies believe that this technology will provide merchants with more flexibility in the way they engage consumers.

Retailers have some trouble breaking into mobile commerce

Mobile Commerce Partnership - MexicoMobile commerce offers a degree of convenience that has rarely been seen in the retail field. Many retailers, however, have had problems with their adoption of mobile commerce in recent years. Several companies have failed to optimize their websites for mobile viewing, providing consumers with a poor shopping experience. Others have utilized mobile commerce platforms that are based on proprietary technology, which has limited people’s access to mobile payments in a significant way.

AnywhereCommerce services are not wholly reliant on NFC technology

The mobile commerce services offered by AnywhereCommerce can be accessible by both Android and iOS devices. This makes these services much more accessible to consumers, many of whom have been excluded from participating in mobile commerce in the past due to the lack of NFC-enabled devices. NFC technology may be one of the foundations of mobile commerce, but the technology may soon be replaced due to the fact that many consumers do not yet have access to mobile devices that are equipped with NFC chips.

Smartphones and tablets are becoming more available, making it possible for a greater number of people to get involved in mobile commerce. These consumers have shown a great deal of interest in shopping online using their mobile devices, praising mobile commerce for the convenience it offers.

Banks and telecommunications companies set sights on mobile commerce

As consumers become more mobile, banks and telecommunications companies throughout Mexico are beginning to take action. Such is the case with Telcel, one of the country’s largest telecommunications companies. Telcel has been working to introduce new mobile commerce platforms to consumers in an effort to make mobile payments easier and more accessible. Several banks throughout the country have also been doing this in an attempt to make mobile banking more prolific among a new generation of mobile-centric consumers.

Report highlights the impact of mobile consumers

A new report from Packaged Facts, a market research firm, highlights the impact mobile commerce is beginning to have on the financial services sector in Mexico. The report, entitled “Mobile and Alternative Payments in Mexico,” notes that the penetration of mobile technology is the primary reason behind the growth of mobile commerce. As more smartphones and tablets find their way into consumer hands, the more likely consumers are to participate in mobile commerce and mobile banking.

Progress in mobile payments may depend on quality of service

The progress of mobile commerce is not likely to be dictated by the companies and organizations that embrace it, but by the quality of the services and mobile payments platforms being made available to consumers. If consumers do not have a positive experience with these platforms, they are unlikely to devote their time and money to mobile commerce.
