Boston, MA (PRWEB) November 15, 2012
Rockport’s new mobile site features the entire Rockport line of shoes, boots and accessories and allows consumers to shop and checkout, all from their smartphones. Powerful features have been integrated into the mobile commerce platform by service provider Unbound Commerce, extending and leveraging the current Rockport ecommerce infrastructure.
And now Rockport has integrated Google Wallet as a payment option on its mobile site to streamline the mobile checkout process for its customers. Selected as a launch partner, Rockport was featured in a recent announcement about the new Google Wallet solution for the mobile web.
Filling in fields of information on a small screen during checkout can slow the process. By adding Google Wallet as a checkout option on its mobile site, Rockport has made it easier and more secure for their customers to buy with their smartphones.
When Rockport mobile customers use Google Wallet to make purchases on mobile sites, they don’t need to enter a credit or debit card number, billing address or other payment information — it’s already securely stored in their Google Wallet. Customers can simply click the “Buy With Google Wallet” button, log in, and click to complete an order in 3 easy steps.
“The checkout process is a key part of any mobile commerce consumer experience,” said Kimberly Correia Hunt, Director of Global eCommerce at Rockport. “This new tool from Google Wallet means our customers can more quickly and easily complete a mobile purchase. We see this as a big asset and are pleased to have been selected to be one of the first online retailers with this tool”, she added.
