[QUOTE]MobiCart is a simple yet powerful mobile commerce platform which can be used by small and medium size businesses to large retailers with thousands of SKUs.
Anyone wanting to sell products or services from a mobile device can use MobiCart. It’s perfect for retailers and also web designers who want to build apps for their clients. Remember, MobiCart works on its own, or links up to your existing website.[/QUOTE]

[QUOTE]So what are people actually buying with their phones? According to a survey by the Mobile Marketing Association, 17% of mobile commerce was used for purchasing applications and ringtones, while another 6% of people used their phones for discounts and coupons, and another [SIZE=“3”]6% used their phones to buy tangible goods[/SIZE] â€” that is, actual goods that you can put in your hands.
According to Beccue, [SIZE=“3”]eBay[/SIZE] has been the standout leader in mobile commerce [SIZE=“3”]with their iPhone app[/SIZE] that launched in 2008, and their Blackberry and Android applications that launched in 2009 and 2010. In 2009, the company saw more than $600 million dollars in goods sold via the mobile app, which was [SIZE=“3”]a 200% increase from 2008[/SIZE].[/QUOTE]
