Daddy, What's a wallet?

Hindsight is 20/20.  Foresight is a mobile payment ready merchant.  
It won't be long before the way you shop and pay will be forever changed.  With a handful of start-up companies battling to be your next mobile wallet, it is almost certain one of them will have you leaving your old leather bound version of a wallet at home.

Discounts, Discovery & Delight: 3Ds for Retail Success

In fashion and retail, Dopamine is the drug of choice. Technically, Dopamine is the neurotransmitter of “desire.” Dopamine leaps across synapses in our brain to control our reward and pleasure centers. It enables craving. It induces repeat behaviors. It makes us want more. Therefore, it is in our best interest to create products and experiences which induce the release of dopamine in our consumers. We could use some dopamine for ourselves, too. In our fashion and retail world, there are three primary stimuli, "3Ds," we can control to deliver hits of dopamine: Discounts, Discovery and Delight.
