Shoppers have caught onto the conveniences of mobile checkout. According to eMarketer’s most recent report, “Global Proximity Mobile Payment Users: eMarketer’s Estimates for 2016-2021,” nearly 35 percent of smartphone users over the age of 14 will use their phone for a purchase in a brick-and-mortar at least once every six months — a record high.
According to the report, China is the global leader in the adoption phase, amounting for more than 61 percent of the entire user base this year. This will fall as the rest of international consumers up their use, the report asserted. But the country will remain the front-runner in the category — comprising 56 percent of proximity mobile payment users in 2021.

In a custom Dior dress fit for a supermodel, @karliekloss married her longtime love, @joshuakushner, in upstate New York yesterday evening. No word yet on honeymoon plans or, more interesting, the guest list. Kloss’ new sister-in-law, Ivanka Trump, did however share her congratulations when they couple became engaged in the summer. “So, so happy for you and Josh! I feel blessed to have you as a sister (!!!) Karlie and look forward to the happy memories we will create together as a family!” wrote Trump on Instagram.
