NEW YORK, Oct. 14, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Logiq, Inc. (formerly Weyland Tech) (OTCQX: LGIQ), a global provider of award-winning eCommerce and Fintech solutions, has launched a new food delivery service, “Dine In Your Car,” at Pondok Indah Mall, one of the top five shopping malls in Jakarta, according to Forbes.
The new service, which delivers food orders directly to vehicles in the mall parking lot, is now available via Logiq’s GoLogiq™ food delivery app.
The service, offered under the HYPERLINK “https://www.atozgo.co.id/” atozGO Mall™ brand in Indonesia, enables users to order food from 65 mall restaurants, including The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf, Goods Burger, Fish & Co, Doner Kebab, Hanei Sushi, Sour Sally Frozen Yogurt, and Baskin Robbins.
The world of grocery shopping looks very different from the one we knew a decade ago. Ordering groceries online is easier and more popular than ever before. Widespread delivery is now offered by virtually every grocery store, either from the retailer itself or from a third-party delivery service like Shipt or Instacart. Curbside pickup has also increased, with many retailers heavily promoting this option even before COVID-19 ushered in a world of social distancing.
These options give consumers the freedom to shop as they please, but they are only the beginning. I believe that in the future, shoppers will embrace a mixed mode of shopping—a hybrid of digital and in-store grocery experiences. Instead of sticking to one format, they will become comfortable with the idea of seamlessly moving from one to the other as their needs arise—and retailers will adapt to these growing expectations.
Holiday 2020 will be an extended shopping season starting with Amazon’s AMZN Prime Day on October 13th and 14th. Many other retailers will be following suit to compete for the customer’s dollars over the two-day period. Last year Amazon Prime Day raked in $6.93 billion worldwide from 124 million U.S. Prime users (up almost 11% from the previous year). For 2020, the projections are sales of $9.91 billion worldwide from more than 142 million U.S. users, surpassing 50% of the US population.
Andrew Lipsman, principal analyst of eMarketer, said in an interview,” Prime Day is a coordinated industry-wide event with other retailers planning promotions to compete with Amazon for shoppers’ attention.” The value of each shopping

Amazon One is the new palm reading technology we may have to start using to pay.
It would be easy to chalk up technological developments from Amazon as par for the course. The company is perpetually throwing spaghetti on the wall to see what sticks.
A recent product unveiling, however, may mean far more than most realize.
The new device is the Amazon One, which can be used for contactless payments and is up and running in two Amazon Go stores. The device facilitates a completely hands-free interaction. Amazon says the palm print reader could also be utilized for things like granting access to restricted areas or in place of a loyalty card. Amazon is using it for its own purposes right now, but plans to sell the tech to third parties in the future.
Amazon One puts the e-commerce giant smack in the middle of a contactless
New Amazon technology, introduced at two Amazon Go stores this week, lets shoppers pay for purchases by holding their hands over a scanner. The system, called Amazon One, may herald a new way of identifying yourself and paying for things that could change the way people shop, enter concerts, use public transportation, and many other things.
You’ve probably used a fingerprint scanner or facial recognition to unlock your smartphone. You already know that your voice and your retinas can be used to positively identify you and give you access to your various devices, and possibly to secure government or corporate facilities. Amazon’s new Amazon One technology takes biometrics a step further by allowing shoppers to pay for purchases with a simple scan of their palms.
To stave off privacy concerns, the company says it is encrypting biometric data before storing it in the cloud, and that the data will be
With attempted account takeover rates skyrocketing 282 percent year-over-year, new data shows consumers place account security burden on businesses
Consumers Are Constantly At Risk
Consumers aren’t ignorant about the dangers of account takeover, and when we asked those who’ve experienced ATO where their credentials were hacked, social media and digital e-commerce sites topped the list. But the rest of the internet is cause for concern, too, with fraudsters finding victims everywhere from financial services platforms to food delivery apps and dating sites.
How wonderful it was to live at the turn of the twenty-first century! We had the luxury of considering climate change as a possible negative that might happen in the seemingly unimaginable future of “ten or 20 years from now.”
Back in the good ole’ days, we imagined that hurricanes would someday become more destructive. Wildfires would someday threaten more population centers. Droughts would someday become more severe.
These worries may have added a twinge of buzzkill while we were partying like it was 1999. On the bright side — most people figured — the disasters would not come for decades and by then, some lab coat-wearing egghead would have figured out a way to technologize us out of our pickle.
Twenty years later, there is some good (and better) news and some bad (and worse)
Mobile devices used for shopping online (m-commerce) will experience substantial growth this holiday season. According to eMarketer, m-com sales will reach $314 billion in 2020, which is $200 billion more than four years ago and represents over 44% of all e-commerce sales.
The pandemic has acted as a catalyst for older generations to adopt the technology as shoppers are worried about their safety and are reluctant to shop in stores. A recent holiday survey by the buy now, pay later company, Sezzle, found the older the shopper, the less likely they will be to shop in-store these holidays.
