A few decades back, we used to visit the stores if we wish to buy goods, be it groceries, clothing, accessories or any other stuff. As we didn’t have other options, we need to travel few miles and then get the goods for home, business or personal uses. People thought that this was quite easier for them. But, they forgot that it affected their overall expenditure.
Then some years later, they got a good news which not only saved their money but also time and efforts. And it was the rise of the e-Commerce industry in the market. It made our lives a way simpler. You want anything, you can get it at your doorstep. No need to travel those extra miles, chase people to buy things, wait in the billing counter for your turn and then return back tired.
No doubt that e-Commerce industry has given some relief to the buyers and businesses. But it has also faced some challenges. If people need to buy something, they need to have a desktop or laptop to open the website and make an order. What about those people who don’t have that luxury?
This challenge made business owners think that their e-Commerce website development should be in such a way which can be accessed via smartphones. As everybody knows that Smartphones are the new revolution among the generation and this device cannot be neglected.
A survey performed in Brazil in the year 2014 and 2015 showed that mobile is taking shares away from the desktop, in the e-Commerce market (21% in 2014 and 32% in 2015). Yes, the percentage of the shares is low as compared to the desktop but it has made a path for itself in the e-Commerce, for the years to come.
