Unbound Commerce Partners With Google Wallet On New mCommerce Rollout

Google Wallet Offering Means Faster Mobile Checkout Flow

Unbound Commerce today announced that it will participate as a Google Wallet platform partner. Unbound is now authorized to deliver Google Wallet checkout functionality in the context of the mobile commerce sites that Unbound builds and deploys for leading national retailers and brands.

Visitors to mobile commerce sites displaying the Google Wallet button can use Google Wallet to checkout, which can reduce friction during the cart interaction process. Mobile consumers who use Google Wallet do not have to type in their shipping and billing information, credit card number, etc. Google Wallet users simply type in their Google usernames and password to pay, which can increase conversion rates and customer satisfaction.

Partner retailers and brands can retain their existing payment processors since the Google Wallet API that Unbound has access to is integrated into its mobile commerce site offering. Best of all, there are no additional fees for accepting Google Wallet on a mobile commerce site, and all payments are sent through the existing credit card processor the retailer uses.

“We are always looking for new ways to streamline the consumer interaction flow for our retailers and brands and are pleased to join forces with the Google Wallet team,”said Wilson Kerr, Unbound’s VP of Business Development & Sales. “Google does not do anything in a small way and we believe they will be a strong force in the mobile payments space. Our retailers are embracing this single click checkout option and we have multiple large brands committed”, he added.

Unbound Commerce Launches Digital Pop-Up Stores

New Feature Links Mobile Commerce and Mobile Marketing

Top mobile commerce solution provider Unbound Commerce today announced the launch of a new program called Digital Pop-Up Stores (DPS). This new feature allows commerce functionality to be infused within a mobile landing page or digital ad.

What differentiates the program is that, for the first time, rich product detail options like style, color and size can be selected by consumers, without leaving the mobile page or ad or refreshing the page. The order is then dropped deep within a retailer’s mobile commerce checkout flow.

This increases conversion rates and allows merchants to assign sales conversion metrics to ads or mobile landing pages, including Facebook ads. Because the page does not need to connect back to the mobile commerce engine behind it until the end of the consumer interaction, the experience is smooth and fast for mobile consumers.

“DPS is a powerful new way for our clients to both drive sales and measure ad effectiveness at the same time. Not just by clicks or by impressions, but by actual mobile sales conversions that can now take place within the ad. We feel this could be a game-changer”, said Srinivasarao Nandiwada, Unbound Commerce co-founder and CTO.

When combined with the QR code generator in the dashboard all Unbound clients have access to, any ad, point of sale, or printed packaging can become the trigger for a pop-up store for mobile customers, at virtually no cost. This links mobile commerce and mobile marketing in a powerful new way, and tracks the resulting sales.

Watch Consumers Scan A Commerce-Enabled QR Code At Rockport’s TruWalkZero Launch Event

Rockport Shoes teamed up with Unbound Commerce to launch their truWALKzero campaign in New York City yesterday. Renowned performance artist Johan Lorbeer suspended himself on the side of a cube that served as a mobe point of sale for the new product line. Rockport used Unbound’s Trigger Point Marketing tools for this effort and displayed a mobile QR code on the cube structure. Simply by scanning the code, Rockport linked consumers directly to a mobile commerce-enabled landing page where they can purchase a new pair of truWalkszero shoes. By tracking responses, Rockport can show demonstrated revenue lift. Watch the video here:

truWALKzero-ss

Adidas’ Rockport.com recently ran a live promotion in New York that used mobile bar codes to let consumers buy shoes via their handsets. The Rockport event took place on April 5 and used a live demonstration to launch the TruWALK line of running shoes. Rockport is working with Unbound Commerce on its mobile initiatives.

“A QR code generator is built into the dashboard Unbound provides to all our clients so ‘real-world trigger points’ can link a physical display to a mobile landing page built specifically for a campaign like this one,” said Wilson Kerr, vice president of business development and sales at Unbound Commerce, Boston.

“This TruWALKzero launch event generated a lot of buzz, but Rockport took this a step further and tied in a commerce-enabled, linked call-to-action, so success could be judged in part by incremental sales lift,” he said.

Rockport is an online retailer that sells footwear for women, men and children.

Light as air

The one-day promotion involved a box display with people hanging off the edges to show how light the new shoes are. The displayed featured QR codes on the sides that took users to an optimized landing page where they could learn more about the product. Users could then tap to buy the shoes on Rockport’s mobile site. Using an outdoor event to tie in with mobile commerce is a smart way for brands to showcase a new product. In Rockport’s case, making the event commerce-enabled could also be effective in driving sales and educating consumers about QR codes. Additionally, the event had a strong social aspect with a Twitter hashtag and Facebook updates, most of which were most likely made by consumers at the event via their mobile devices.

Mobile rock

Although QR codes seem to be plastered over any marketing material nowadays, many consumers might not be familiar with the technology. By showing users how to scan a QR code that leads to an optimized, commerce-enabled page, it helps users get a better grasp on mobile. Rockport has been building up its mobile presence recently. The brand recently revealed that mobile traffic grew 75.8 percent year-over-year, showing how important it is for retailers to have an optimized site (see story). “QR codes lead to sales because they are displayed at the exact place and time a mobile consumer is most prequalified to be interested in buying the product or service being promoted,” Mr. Kerr said. “They are literally standing in front of a display and can use their phone to access a mobile-optimized version of an online store where they can check-out in a few clicks,” he said. “The purchase-intent funnel is drastically shortened, and the conversions tracked and measured.”

American Medical ID Launches Mobile Commerce Site

Unbound Commerce Powers Mobile Engraved Medical ID Site, Supported By QR Code Campaign

Unbound Commerce, the top choice among retailers for commerce-enabled mobile websites, today announced the launch of a mobile site for client American Medical ID, the foremost producer of affordable, custom-engraved medical ID bracelets, necklaces and pendants.

Until now, customers could not order their personalized medical ID jewelry unless they were sitting in front of a desktop or laptop computer. Now, as soon as a condition is diagnosed by a doctor or pharmacist, patients can order these potentially lifesaving products, while on the go.

“We saw mobile traffic to our standard site increasing fast and knew we wanted to promote our services by using QR codes in printed mailings. But first we needed the entire custom engraving and ordering process to work in a mobile site,” said Liz Gabel of American Medical ID.

The new mobile site displays their entire product catalog and allows a mobile customer to customize, engrave, preview, and purchase their ID jewelry, all from their phone. A QR code generator within the mobile commerce control panel from Unbound allows American Medical ID to link printed campaigns directly to a specific mobile page – where a sale can be most-easily converted.

“The service American Medical ID provides saves lives. Quickly and effectively mobile-optimizing their online offering was paramount,” said Wilson Kerr, Unbound’s Director of Business Development & Sales. “The team at American Medical ID is dedicated to serving their increasingly-mobile customers and we are pleased to have been selected for the job”.
