📌 More Mobile Shopping Expected This Holiday Season-
Not what your brick & mortar clients want to hear. In a daVinci Payments poll of 675 women, ages 18 to 75, 47% said they expect to make more than half of their holiday purchases digitally.
“Other recent survey results also indicate online shopping could eclipse in-store shopping this season. PwC’s 2019 Holiday Outlook report found 54 percent of those polled will shop online, and 46 percent will shop in stores, reports Retail Dive.” – Caitlin Mullen, writing in BizJournals

“This is likely going to be fixed quickly. But, if you rely heavily on scheduling content to your Facebook page, know that there are two known workarounds in the meantime.” – Jon Loomer
