New Program Drives Shoppers to Mobile-Friendly Retailers
Comparison shopping site Become.com has created a new program to help consumers determine which online retailers have mobile-compatible storefronts. An increasing amount of shoppers are using their mobile devices to compare prices between local and online stores, making it vitally important for e-commerce merchants to have their sites properly formatted for mobile shopping.
Become.com’s Mobile Shopping site contains editorial reviews of each merchant’s mobile compliance, such as whether a store’s website renders properly on a consumer’s mobile browser. Become.com also reviews shopping apps for the iPhone, iPad, Blackberry and Android markets. The site also awards certification to mobile-friendly retail sites so that shoppers can look for the Mobile Certified Badge to know they are on a website where they will have a seamless mobile retail experience.
