In the mobile age, consumers are increasingly taking control of the shopping experience. Mobile consumers expect to be able to browse for, purchase and receive products through channels of their choosing. This trend has been referred to as “the consumerization of retail”.

The 21st century has brought a paradigm shift to retail — the industry has been forced to support the digital consumer. As Web 2.0 brought standards for authentication, payments and APIs, the digital storefront became dynamic. Now, we are seeing yet another paradigm shift, created by the arrival of smartphones and mobile apps.
