This Week I Learned -

The mobile commerce market will grow to $19 billion, according to a Forrester report and most of this will come from tier-II towns. For companies like Shopclues & Paytm, browser and app are both equally important. As of the 2011 census, there are 3,000 tier-II towns. Shopclues calls itself the shopping destination of the tier-II and III cities. According to the analysis of Shopclues, high-value transactions are still done on a desktop and low value on the phone. Consumers in tier-II towns have low memory, low processing power in phones. It means they can’t have an app constantly asking them to update or sending them notifications. So, every time there is a sale, they install, shop and uninstall an app. The real estate on the phone’s memory is very expensive.

* "It's difficult to have a good plan when you are forced to react to external events" - Ivan Ristic
