The 3 Companies Dominating Mobile Commerce Right Now

Over the past 20 years, the Internet has upended more than a few entrenched industries. Retail, though, has been affected perhaps more than any other. 

And like all things technology, times they are a-changing once again. The impact of the mobile web is being felt from the mom-and-pop stores on Main Street, to the big-box giants like Wal-Mart (NYSE: WMT  ) , to the new(ish) kids on the retail block like Amazon.com (NASDAQ: AMZN  ) and eBay (NASDAQ: EBAY  ) .

The only thing that is constant is change, a maxim particularly true in retail.
As history has shown, some of these players will adapt and thrive to the new mobile consumer, while others will move too slowly and fade. 

Looking to the future then, who are the retailers today most prepared for a mobile future? In the video below, Motley Fool contributor Jay Jenkins speaks with Brandon Workman of Business Insider Intelligence, co-author of a recent report covering exactly this question.
