The new era of retail is upon us as the digital disruptors are quietly — but pretty completely — turning the tables, and consumers are increasingly voting with their feet (and dollars) for the omnichannel age to become ubiquitous. And it’s not just retail that’s increasingly wired up. Even the massive B2B market looks like it’s ready to throw off the shackles of the paper check (and all the fraud that comes with it). The smart move is increasingly to think differently, adaptively — and perhaps with an eye to partnerships, à la Samsung and Paypal.
$120 trillion: The value of the global B2B payments market.
71 percent: The share of businesses that report being the victim of actual or attempted check fraud.
55 percent: The share of mass merchant consumers who say they shop in both digital and physical channels.
41 percent: The share of grocery shoppers who only shop in a physical store.
$5.00: The gift balance PayPal users who link their PayPal accounts to Samsung Pay will receive.
