@Valera Bokhan I gave to Kickstarter 3 times before giving up on the website completely. All the things in this video are dead-on: the 10,000 emails to update you on a product that will never come, the cheesy promo video, etc.

@nathanielmott @timrpeterson why not, the frustration leading to shopping cart abandonment comes from many sources, explain your thesis again because its not clear, short of some device interpreting our DNA to identify us and interpreting our thoughts to know what we want, there will always be at least one action the consumer will have to do to obtain something (clicking some buy button, the identity can be stored),
The whole reason the online shopping cart exists in the first place (blowing away centuries of bricks and mortar stores in only 10 years) is because Amazon et al. developed this solution on the desktop WEB. My point is the WEB will have the best chance of developing the next gold standard payment system on mobile. This is simply because with the web there are more shots on goal. 2 App stores (Apple/Google) with UX highly confined by their business terms can only result in hacky solutions that never scale.
1 year ago on Shopping on a smartphone sucks. Payvia (and everyone else) wants to fix it
point is web gives total control to businesses to make as simple and distinctive as possible, one/no click, whatever, at this point the poor experiences on mobile are solely due to poor coding (most cases legacy code/mentality from desktop)
on the other hand, App stores will never get you there both because Apple/Google control the pricing and the UI, you get that navy blue popup box every time, lame..
its called use the mobile web,
its always going to suck if it has to go through apple's teat
google apps will win in the end, msft hasn't improved anything in 20 years, google improves every month
