Smartphones changing our shopping behaviour

Smartphones changing our shopping behaviour
Few are the activities we enjoy more than shopping for a new smartphone, but there are some people out there that are actually more interested in discovering how we're shopping using our smartphones. It turns out that our handhelds are doing quite a lot to change our shopping behaviors. Not only do we tend to shop directly from the small screen, but we're also increasingly using it to check and compare prices or search for additional product information.

These findings have been made thanks to a new survey by VoucherCodesPro, which was interested to see just how much of an impact our smartphones have on our shopping habits. Thankfully, they have also put together the cute infographic that you can find in the gallery below.

Have you, guys, purchased stuff using your smartphones? Why did you prefer to do so?

Nope, I haven't. Because I love going outdoors, I love crowded places, so I prefer shopping outdoors!

This article is about using your smartphone WHILE shopping. I use mine while looking at new craft beers to try (, or seeing if I can get a product for significantly cheaper off eBay or Amazon. The Amazon app has a built-in barcode scanner that shows their prices (handy to save you a few bucks on what might be an impulse buy at Best Buy).

Oh damn! I misunderstood the article! Geez.......what the hell I'm doing? Ok ignore that, let's get back to the main thing, I only use the barcode scanner app to scan the barcode and shows their prices. And in my country, there are no Best Buy, Kmart, Walmart etc. , but I will be happy if one of them open in my country! There are local big stores like Aeon, Giant etc. (I guess you don't know what is that right?) But still, I hope that Best Buy, Kmart, Walmart, one of them will open in my country! I really wish to go to one of these stores!

Yes I used kayak app to purchace airline ticket. It was cheaper using the app than the web interface buy a few $ for domestic round trip in the US. . Also I use ebay app because of the notification alert right into my phone. So convenient.
