Over the river and through the woods (with commerce-enabled smartphones in hand) to grandmother’s house we will soon go to celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday with our family and friends. One of the things we want to give thanks for is you – our loyal readers – and to show our appreciation, we’d like to offer PYMNTS readers free access to our December 3 Mobile Commerce Insider Series Live Discussion with PayPal and disruptive retailer, Hointer.
Speaking of the holiday season… we’ve all read, and commiserated over recent news that spending projections for the 2013 holiday season are down. Given the forecasts, retailers must continue to challenge their thinking and devise creative ways to reinvent shopping experiences, both online and in-store. And with mobile technologies harnessing the power to reinvent, disrupt and reinvigorate the physical point of sale – where more than 90 percent of all commerce transactions take place today – we couldn’t think of a better way to kick the holiday season into high gear and cure our shopping blues but to dish over our turkey leftovers for our December 3 live discussion.
The discussion, moderated by our very own Karen Webster, Market Platform Dynamics CEO, will feature expert insights from Patrick Gauthier, Head of Product Strategy and Business Operations for Retail Services at PayPal and Nadia Shouraboura, CEO of Hointer, formerly with Amazon, and dig deep into the technologies at the heart of the revitalization of the shopping experience to share how retailers are using creative technologies this holiday season to drive new cost efficiencies and value for both retailers and their customers.
