1. Tumblr goes for e-commerce now.
After two years of existing Tumblr starts experiments with a ‘Buy’ button that lets users post content from Etsy. It’s a small step toward e-commerce, but let’s wait and see.
2. The final countdown of The Internet of Things.
Not only new products are popping up all the time. There’s more than 600 companies involved now and it’s not about startups anymore, large companies are active too. And it’s just getting started.
3. Amazon is failing a lot lately.
It’s not the best time for Amazon. Only about 16% of revenue are projected for this year (while 2010 it was 40%) and its stock is down 18%. Is this e-commerce giant going down?
4. Fitting clothes while shopping online is definitely working.
Two big companies from two big cities Fits.me (London) and Clothes Horse (New York) are teaming up. Combining ‘Virtual Fitting Room’ and data driven recommendations tool for shoppers will make a massive footprint in the industry.
5. Stripe and Apple joined forces to bring Apple Pay.
With this smartphone application they want to make in-app transactions more popular and they already secured partnerships with Twitter and Facebook. They also made a deal with Alipay.
