In China, Alibaba reaped $14.3 billion in sales during the Singles’ Day, and 69% of purchases came from mobile devices. Over 1 billion Chinese customers are using mobile payment and other digital services through Alipay and WeChat. These digital technologies have enabled consumers to discover, research, engage, and purchase products in store aisles, out-and-about in the street, and now at home or office. Over 3.6 billion people worldwide are deeply engaged with smartphone devices and Internet-of-things (IoT). Almost 75% of Facebook’s and 70% of Twitter’s advertising revenues now come from mobile. By 2016, such seamless and hassle-free digital experience with just a tap of a finger will influence $2.2 trillion in brick-and-mortar sales.
