In Canada, less than 20 per cent of small and medium businesses (SMBs) have an online retail presence. The reality is that many SMBs are so busy working to keep their businesses running that they have only ever given a brief thought to going online. It's a "nice-to-have," but not a "must-have."
The smartphone is not only becoming our primary source for Internet use -- it's dramatically changing money, and how we transact. What we're seeing today is a fundamental change in the evolution of money, driven by mobile that has -- and will continue to have -- major implications for retail and digital commerce.
