In today's mobile era, online shopping is very much in vogue. People by default spend their maximum time on their smart devices for a variety of purposes ranging from shopping to booking movie tickets, ordering food online, etc. Gone are the days when we used to visit a store and spend more time going through product details. Today, all we do is tapping on our mobile or tab screen, view details and purchase. Alike e-commerce, m-commerce is trending to a great extent. M-commerce is an easy and faster process to have product details in hand within a few seconds.
