    Silvers embrace mobile shopping enthusiastically.

    Facing an aging society, especially in Poland, we must start adapting technologies to changing demographic conditions. Thus, solutions that meet the needs of the Silver generation become crucial. Innovations in mobile apps, online services, and other consumer technologies must follow principles of ease of use, adaptation to sensory limitations, and functionality. Enterprises that effectively implement these have the opportunity to lead a new, expanding market segment.

    - Marek Lesiak, CEO & Chief Technology Officer at Efigence

    “Interestingly, the Silver generation faces similar e-commerce hurdles as others when finalizing their mobile transactions. This group favors quick and secure payment methods such as BLIK (although its popularity wanes with age), proving the need for the industry to offer convenient, secure, and fast payment methods to accommodate not only the youngest but also Silver consumers, who value simple and modern solutions.”

    - Wojciech Bogdan, Chief Marketing & Financial Services Officer at Allegro

    Is age still a factor in our ability to navigate digital products? For sure age can introduce certain unavoidable challenges, particularly health-related ones. While there’s a lot of discussion around inclusivity, there seems to be a tendency to prioritize the demands of the youngest. Who exactly are the Silvers, and is there a necessity to approach them differently? That’s what this report is about.
