The three most significant challenges for mobile commerce within and outside the store is attaining a 'critical mass' of customers, retail localization, and adequate usage scenarios throughout the retail enterprise for gradual optimization.

"," prepared by , Research Analyst for the Aberdeen research practice, shows that companies must have an online personalization strategy encompassing more than just outbound marketing campaigns with product recommendations based on prior purchase behavior. With advanced analytics in place, retailers are making a strong push towards their personalization strategies to include the 360-degree customer experience as part of the bigger picture retail strategy. Product information must be tailored to the individual. Different customer segments may require different product information, whether that requires highlighting differentiating attributes or low price. However, these attributes will not be the same for every consumer. Depending on age, gender, or ethnicity, the differentiating attributes of one product compared to another may be more important than the lowest price.
