The future is for M-Commerce
In the Covid era, no one on earth still doesn’t know what e-commerce is. Purchasing online became a fact and a common practice worldwide. The term “m-commerce” came to the surface in early 2020 referring to purchase and pay online but by using a mobile device instead of a computer or a laptop. (Investopedia)
The e-commerce and m-commerce together are growing dramatically year over year, and they both made 4 trillion dollars in 2020, with a market share of 18% of the total retail industry sales. They are also expected to generate total revenue of 7 trillion dollars in 2025 contributing 25% of the total retail industry sales. (emMarketer)
