In 2012, shoppers spent $25 billion on purchases made from phones and tablets, an increase of 81% from the previous year. This isn’t just a fad, this is a total shift in consumer habits. There’s no sense in denying it: people will spend lots of money with your business, and they will do so over their smartphone.
