U.S. Bank launches mobile commerce for major retailers

U.S. Bank says it will accelerate the delivery of a mobile commerce product discovery and shopping service that provides an easier way for top-tier retailers to help consumers interact with and buy from leading brands via mobile.

U.S.  Bank will develop an advanced mobile shopping experience including product selection and instant checkout payment capabilities. Leveraging unique digital and audio watermarking and scanning technology for product discovery from Digimarc and Nellymoser, a division of Gruner+Jahr, an initial pilot will integrate mobile action codes, mobile shopping and mobile payments to create a way for consumers to discover, learn about, purchase, and share the products they want from their favourite brands.
