Imagine the world where you can purchase shoes, fashion, health and beauty care products, electronics, shaving sets and even a car directly from your favorite brand, with the single touch of a button. Well, that might just not be as far away as you think.

One of the big things coming out of Shoptalk 2019 held in Las Vegas recently was: Stores need to get digital. Why?

Talk to any B2B trader a few years ago, and he’d tell you the e-commerce would be off-limits. He’d list the numerous reasons why not to do it – from relationship to spec, volume, price, discount and delivery.

Before the world went digital, 1 click ticket to shop could have referred to clicking the button on a mobile printer which prints a ticket to promote a specific SKU in a store. It still can of course, but in today’s mobile shopping world 1 click ticket to shop means so much more.
