Reason for their Popularity

This surge in popularity of the retailer mobile apps is credited to the fact that the shoppers are now getting a little more comfortable in letting the new age technology retain and protect their personal information. This survey was conducted with the participation of 1,200 respondents.

In the recent times, the mobile phone has emerged as one of the most critical channels. This is supported by the fact that a greater number of customers are using retailer mobile apps not only to browse, but also to make purchases, read product reviews, avail coupons, and even to find the nearest physical store. It was further mentioned in the report that of the 67 percent more than half had downloaded a retailer mobile app did it particularly to avail a certain discount or coupon for purchase and about half of these people are using the app to make direct purchases.

A well-designed retail mobile app has the ability to engage existing and prospective customers both, in and out of the physical store by offering them highly personalized services and by extending to them easy credit solutions. In this scenario today, for any retailer the customers who are us8ing their retail mobile app are at the top priority. It is for this reason that the retailers who have robust mobile applications want these apps to provide to the customers flawless shopping experience that is specifically customized according to their preferences and actions they take within the app.
