Mobile commerce firm gains new clients

MoPowered continues to make progress in the mobile space

Mobile commerce firm MoPowered has announced that it has added 27 new clients in less than two months. The company now accounts for 127 clients and expects its revenue to grow by 33% over what it had been in 2013. According to the firm’s CEO, Dominic Keen, the market for mobile commerce has proven to be quite promising. The company plans to continue engaging mobile consumers aggressively in order to take advantage of positive market trends.

Firm raises $5 million to expand and improve its services for online retailers

MoPowered raised some $5 million in funding in December last year and has been connecting with retailers that are interested in mobile shopping and the mobile space in general. Consumers have become quite reliant on their mobile devices in recent years and many are using these devices to shop online and purchase products. It is becoming more common for consumers to purchase products in physical stores with their smartphones and tablets. Retailers currently appear to favor the online aspects of mobile commerce over its offline potential.

Mobile websites must provide a favorable experience if consumers are to participate in mobile shopping

Mobile Commere Firm gains new clientsMoPowered specializes in revitalizing websites and making them more accommodating to smartphones and tablets. Retail mobile sites are often lackluster and provide consumers with a poor shopping experience. Consumers with a poor shopping experience are unlikely to continue using a particular website or service. MoPowered helps ensure that consumers have a good experience with mobile shopping.

MoPowered expected to face strong competition from larger companies in the mobile commerce space

MoPowered has positioned itself to accelerate its acquisition of new clients in 2014. The funding that the company has raised, along with the patronage of new clients, has helped it expand and improve its mobile commerce platform. MoPowered will, of course, have to compete with a multitude of other companies that are trying to engage mobile consumers. Competition may be fierce, as several large organizations have taken a strong interest in the mobile space and plan to continue strengthening their presence therein throughout the coming year.

eBay’s bright mobile commerce future

Mobile commerce for 2013

Market trends for the future can often be found in what people are doing with their mobile phones and other devices. Experts keep a keen eye on the market for trends that point to future success in any sector. Mobile commerce is the hot topic for 2013, with Paypal poised to make record amounts of mobile commerce transactions. eBay has also been successful at integrating mobile capabilities into its auctions, with a full one third of transactions on the site coming from a mobile source.

Established financial institutions like Visa, MasterCard, banks, and Paypal have been projected to be the big winners in mobile commerce in the coming year. Payments can be made by mobile phone by Paypal users, and other institutions are working on or have released similar programs. Paying for auctions with Paypal is commonplace, which means a natural progression towards mobile commerce rewards for all sectors of eBay, Inc.

Mcommerce Predictions

Colin Gillis, analyst at BGC Partners, believes eBay, Inc. is the top dog for e-commerce in 2013. He believes that eBay could one day be worth more than Amazon, a long time top company for online sales. To him, eBay is one of the players that will remain stable and see growth in the coming year, which could pay out in dividends for stockholders.

eBay, Inc. ha shown strong growth in GMV – gross merchandise volume – in the last year and continues to see growth. Some of this growth can be attributed towards new members and an approach to mobile commerce in general. That, along with the projects for Paypal to be a leader in mobile payments, give the company a strong outlook into the new year. Paypal alone is projected to handle over $10 million in mobile payments in the next year. 100 million users have downloaded eBay’s app for mobile phones in the company’s last quarter alone.

Potential problems for eBay include the PayPal Bill Me Later option, which could open up new risks with credit. eBay should also be on the lookout for stiff competition from both online and offline merchants, along with high in-house costs associated with acquisitions.
