Apple Pay now at Sephora West Coast And Manhattan Locations | Retail + Brand Innovation | Scoop.it

Sephora has announced the adoption of Apple Pay for all Bay Area stores, starting today. It will also be in the Lexington store in Manhattan.

 

Over 70 percent of Sephora’s in-store customers are also iPhone owners, according to internal company research.

 

Sephora plans to test the market in the two major tech metropolises, but says it will roll out Apple Pay in stores nationwide in the very near future.

Will DFS follow soon? Other operators in 2015 when Apple Pay will be launched outside of the USA?

Any technology making the purchasing process easier for the consumer is welcome...

Amazon introduce mobile point-of-sale « Retail Innovation | Retail + Brand Innovation | Scoop.it

Amazon are now entering the bricks & mortar world of retail by offering a mobile payment solution which allows small business to install a card payment device to an iPhone, iPad or Android device and take payment essentially turning the device into a mobile point-of-sale. Since the attachment does not feature Chip & PIN, the system will be restricted to countries that still support card swipe devices which excludes most of Europe.

174 million Chinese tourists are tipped to spend $264 billion by 2019. Are you ready?

174 million Chinese tourists are tipped to spend $264 billion by 2019. Are you ready? | Retail + Brand Innovation | Scoop.it

174 million Chinese tourists are tipped to spend $264 billion by 2019 compared with the 109 million who spent $164 billion in 2014, according to a new analysis by Bank of America Merrill Lynch. To put that in perspective, there were just 10 million Chinese outbound tourists in 2000.

 

Millennials, or 25- to 34- year olds, are expected to make up the bulk of Chinese tourists at 35% of the total, followed by 15- to 24- year olds accounting for around 27%.

 

Only about 5% of China's 1.3 billion populace are thought to hold passports, meaning the potential for outbound tourism is vast.
