“A survey of the largest 500 online retailers in terms of revenue found that only 12% have Web sites that have been adopted for mobile devices. And only 2% have made it possible for consumers to make purchases with their mobile devices, says the survey produced by the Acquity Group, a digital services and consulting firm. It used data supplied by Internet Retailer Magazine.”
So whose to blame here? Well, instead of pointing the finger, we’re looking forward to doing our part for mobile commerce in the small and medium-sized business space (or as our friends at 37Signals call it, the Fortune 5 Million).
When we roll out BigCommerce 6 in a few short weeks, our 6,000 customers will have an instant mobile offering of their BigCommerce store ready to go for iPhone, iPad, Andriod, Palm Pre and Blackberry devices. No application for their client to install on their device. No coding or customization. No approval process. No configuration files or scripts. It’s automatic and “just works”.
Take a peek at what’s coming:
