E-commerce has risen to the point where just about everybody is an e-commerce company, and that goes even beyond retailers of goods. To understand that trend and to see how far it might stretch, we talk about the adoption of chat and social commerce in emerging markets with Ramy Assaf, Ceo of Zbooni, a Dubai-based fintech/commerce startup. He tells us how he came to build Zbooni, what it's like working with Facebook, why Square and Shopify are model companies for his firm, and how consumer behavior is changing amidst everything that's happened in the last year.
