Every Moment a Shopping Moment

In 2013 we'll see significant growth in moments to shop fueled by technology – from the rise of "television commerce" to "social media commerce" and the maturation of "mobile commerce."

For example, this year American Express will fully roll out its television commercial initiative, enabling consumers to purchase products seen on TV shows via the web or an iPad app.

Also this year, Facebook is expected to roll out "want" or "collect" buttons on images to rival Pinterest, after testing in 2012.

Banks will start to play fully in the mobile wallet/payments space, offering apps that replace consumers' wallets and competing with services like Google Wallet.
