Holiday Predictions: Big buys, Bathrooms and Binge-watching
Please wash your hands after shopping!

By PayPal










As a global leader in digital payments, PayPal sees the online shopping landscape unlike anyone else in the world. We get to take part in how technology is radically transforming the shopping experience, which is most visible during the festive season.



Much like PayPal, holiday shopping has grown beyond simply one button at one moment, now encompassing the freedom of mobile devices and the security and simplicity to make a purchase, with confidence, at a moment’s notice.

Shoppers will take advantage of this freedom in many ways: to help relieve the stress of the season, to take advantage of a great deal, or sometimes, conducting their sending, spending and giving in an entirely new place! We combined data from our network with a new survey to better understand these trends and here’s what we discovered.

Shoppers will turn to mobile to stress less, buy big and make the most of Cyber Monday.



Many consumers find holiday shopping to be stressful; so much so they’d rather do a multitude of unenviable activities than fight the holiday shopping crowds.; 1-in- 5 Young Boomers and Gen-Xers would rather go to the dentist; and, about 1-in-5 Millennials (19%) would rather text with their boss over the weekend.

Fortunately, more and more shoppers are taking advantage of their mobile devices to simplify their shopping. Thanks to innovations like PayPal One Touch™, where shoppers can remain logged in to check out faster across millions of merchants, PayPal saw a 56% year-over-year increase in mobile payment transactions this past quarter and we expect to see more shoppers turn to their mobile devices during holidays.

Smartphone shopping isn’t just for stocking stuffers, however – PayPal predicts the largest holiday transaction on mobile will cost more than $64,000. Not too long ago, the thought of buying via mobile is the equivalent of a beautiful car on a mobile device seemed like the distant future!

28 November is known across the globe as Cyber Monday, and is one of the biggest online shopping days of the year. We anticipate this Cyber Monday will mark the summit of the shopping season once again, and PayPal expects more than $25,000 in Total Payment Volume (TPV) per second at peak of Cyber Monday – with 40% of Millennials planning to shop on a mobile device that day.

Anytime, anywhere shopping will reach new heights … and locations.



Even more than how they pay, shoppers are also particular about how and when they shop this season.

Case in point: 22% of respondents to a PayPal survey reported they will shop on the toilet—an increase of 7 percentage points over 2014! Furthermore, more than a third (34%) will shop in bed for their partner or spouse while they are sleeping next to them.

Also interesting, is the rise of the second screen: 59% of Millennials plan do to their holiday shopping while binge-watching TV. All that TV binging could signal what’s on their wish list as PayPal predicts consumers will spend more than $141 million on digital music and entertainment subscriptions this holiday season with PayPal. 

Fortunately, wherever consumers are or what else they’re doing at the time, PayPal connects them with a vast network of 15 million merchants – from local artisans to big retailers – all over the world so they can find one-of-a-kind gifts without even having to leave the couch (or, wherever they may be).

Shopping and socializing will collide this festive season, as consumers eat, drink and shop merry.




Combining shopping with dinner or drinks is no longer considered the faux pas it once was, especially if there is a bargain to be had. In general, one in five Millennials will shop at the dinner table with family and friends.

We’re excited about the festive season ahead and can’t wait to hear about all the fun ways our consumers will spend and give this year!

Are you a student of a Nigerian School? Popular mobile phone store; 3CHub has declared amazing discounts for students with a valid Student Identity card.

According to a statement signed at the Lagos office today by the Digital Marketing Manager of the brand; Mr. Olamilekan Raji.  3CHub is offering students mouth watering discounts in different measures up to 5,000 Naira.

These discounts were said to be dependent on the kind of devices purchased by these students. He added, "Our brand is committed to giving our customers the complete sense of affordability and we want to ensure students can affordably purchase mobile phones of their choice". According to him, the sales discount has begun already on the 24th of October and would end on the 24th of November 2016.

Although, this discount is only available to students, however, other members of the public can benefit from the offer because the store offers very affordable devices. Students constitute a large population in the Nigerian demography and this is expected to trigger excitement and joy in the hearts of the millions of students across the country.

3CHub, a Chinese smartphone retailer is massively penetrating the Nigerian market by making itself the most affordable retail store in Nigeria.
In light of Nigeria’s recession, a lot of people are looking for good-looking ,durable, low priced and efficient smartphones that wouldn’t break the bank. The Infinix Note 3 X601 is just that. 

Now you reckon i have been using the Infinix Note 3 for over a month and i have gotten really comfortable with the form factor which anyone could expect from a 6-inch screen phablet device. Yes, the Note 3 is a phablet, however, its thin bezels may have you fooled into thinking it’s just a 5.5 inch phone because it fits into your hand more just as easy.  The Note 3  features a finger print sensor at the back and you can watch my unboxing video to see the improvements of the Infinix Note 3 over the Note 2.



The Note 3 is also very hard to drop accidentally because it is not slippery at all. The third party cases are also readily available in the market and i bought a clear rubber case just to protect the shiny body after 1 month without scratches….what can i say, i’m a careful chap.

The front facing screen is an LCD IPS full HD display in 1080P. This just means it’s really bright and the colors are punchy. A lot of people argue that any higher pixel count after a 1080P display cannot be discerned by the human eye.


The 13MP camera of at the back is really neat for high quality shots.  See photos shot with the Infinix Note 3 below.






The Octacore processor on the Note 3 is more than capable of handling every app on the android playstore that you throw at it. What do i mean by more than capable? I mean, it doesn’t lag in any way, form or kind. I breezed through all kinds of apps in my day-to-day usage and i haven’t had any stutter or lag. I think in the end, we all want a trusted companion more than any unfinished cutting edge.  The Note 3 is running the Android Marshmallow 6.0 with Infinix XOS UI slapped on it.

I cannot wait to jump into the good stuff, the battery life. The Note 3 carries a hefty 4500mAh battery. The Infinix Note 3 is said to last up to 200mins of talk time with just 5mins of charge and people have put that to the test in other reviews and found this to be true. I cannot engage in a 200min phone call so i put the phone through my own heavy testing.

My daily usage of the Infinix Note 3 is basically Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, streaming videos on youtube, surfing the web and gaming.  The Note 3 easily lasts me 2 whole days doing all of these and amazingly has so much juice to spare that it has me wondering whether to charge or push it to its limits. Now, my usage may differ from yours but it is heavy because not a lot of activities drain any battery as fast as gaming, you can ask any gamer. 




I have released 2 gaming reviews for those gamers out there who wish to see how well the games run on the Infinix Note 3.


A lot could be said about this 6-inch phablet but the most important thing is that it is the device that could eliminate those long days that you wished for a miracle socket to power your dear smartphone. No more long days, just keep talking. I have to say that after being spoiled by the beastly battery of the Note 3, i'm slowly withdrawing from regular sized phones with regular battery capacities which is something i never expected.

 

It has only been 2 months since Infinix launched her new XOS UI for its new line of Infinix smartphones. Infinix pushed out updates to the Note 3 X601 barely one month after its official launch. 

 

Shortly after, infinix pushed a more extensive update to the Infinix Hot S. Some infinix users have taken to twitter to express their joy. 


This is good news to all infinix fan boys and girls because speedy updates are what you'd expect from the latest crop of Infinix phones. 


Upgrades usually come with a variety of bug fixes and cool features that you may have missed, however, I haven't experienced any bug with the old or new software version. If you're using any of these devices, you should have gotten a prompt for it but just in case you ignored it and you wish to update later, Check Settings > About > System update.




Popular phone retail company 3C HUB is at it again. We have reliably gathered that 3CHUB would be having a massive promo to celebrate Nigeria's independence day.

The activity which is been labeled 3C HUB Sales Promo would be running until 8th of October 2016. Customers can win a TV, pressing iron, and electric kettle.

3C HUB is in Nigeria to stay. The rate at which 3C HUB new outlets has been springing up all over the country speaks of a company that is ready to stay in the Nigerian market and probably own the market.
From what we have observed they are not only here to stay but they also have their customers in mind by providing a very conducive place to shop, lowest prices in the country as well as a very good after sales service. Currently, they are running a promo for independence day and according to their Facebook page, there would be discounts on selected devices as well as a chance for customers to win a 32 inch LED TV, electric kettle and a pressing iron.

If you need the best deal for your next smartphone, visit the nearest 3C HUB outlet to you.
Do you need a new phone? Do you want to get it at the best price? Do you want a guarantee of the best after-sales policy for the device? If your answer is yes to all of the above, look no further than 3CHUB.
They offer the very best deal as well as quality services in a very conducive environment. When next you pass by any 3C HUB outlet, do well to go in and see for yourself the true meaning of quality and affordable service.
