Online purchases account for close to 20% of our country’s GDP. And credit card transactions accounted for more than US$800 million spent by US customers in 2016, with a large portion of that amount being credited to online shopping. Pair these facts with smartphone penetration on the market, and it is easy to see how 2017 will be the year of mobile commerce.
