“Social eCommerce” is selling goods/services directly within social media platforms like TikTok. It meets consumers where they are, allowing them to make a purchase immediately and seamlessly on social media rather than redirecting them to a business' website. Result: more convenient on-demand action.
Use of digital currencies (including central bank digital currencies) and stablecoins / cryptocurrencies continue to grow. Consumers are demanding freedom from central bank or government controls including cross-border payments and remittances, loyalty and rewards and digital-wallet integration.
Consumers are already familiar with using biometrics (e.g. finger, face or iris to access smartphones). Now, they're ready to use them for payments over the Internet to making shopping more convenient and secure. 86% are interested in extending the use of biometrics as long as their privacy is respected.
Many of these emerging opportunities are tied to the increasingly digital world we live in — a trend that is accelerating with Artificial Intelligence and ever expanding digital economy. As our personal and professional lives continue to move online, so does more and more of our economic activity.

For a new generation of shoppers, this is an exciting opportunity but also a challenge to adapt to for business decision makers.
