There are four key trends that will transform commerce in 2017: global, payments, mobile, and social. This commerce revolution is driven by advances in technology, smart phone adoption, and shifting consumer trends. The number of smartphone users in the world will surpass two billion users this year.1 Mobile technologies are opening up new ways for consumers to shop and for merchants to reach their customers. Alternative payments are no longer a nice-to-have for online retailers — they are essential.
The ‘Millennial’ generation is the biggest in US history. Not only do Millennials have more spending power than any of their predecessors but they are also purchasing differently. With an increase in mobile payment volume of 44 percent year-over-year2, nearly 40 percent of Millennials don’t expect to need cash within a decade. They also prefer to use the financial service offerings of tech leaders over those offered by their own bank.3
Technologies are also enabling merchants to expand their customer base globally and to reach customers in their daily lives. In the next five years, consumer cross-border sales are projected to triple to a total volume of $450 billion.4
