Dublin - Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/q9d6w2/u_s_ecommerce_m) has announced the addition of the "U.S. E-commerce: Mobile Devices and Alternative Payments Bring Retail Online" report to their offering.
Online retail sales growth increased for a second consecutive year in 2011, a feat that was not achieved from 2001 through 2010. And while the segment might not be growing as quickly as it was at the turn of the century, several trends indicate that online retail's resurgence could be sustainable.
The distinction between online and offline retail is beginning to dissolve, and the Internet is now affecting a majority of purchases, even those that are not made online. Mercator Advisory Group's newest report, U.S. E-Commerce: Mobile Devices and Alternative Payments Bring Retail Online, describes how smartphones and alternative online payment forms are changing the way consumers conduct commerce and compares the transactions consumers choose to make in stores with transactions executed online.
