Layar is the world’s leading Augmented Reality Platform on mobile. This browser is on a reported 1.6 million Android and iPhone devices. They are now integrating the ability to purchase things from various places that you may find while using the app. Paypal is first payment provider with support for United States, United Kingdom, Canada and Australia. More countries will be supported in the near future. This could prove to be very lucrative for Layar and their publishers.
The first publishers to seize the opportunity include among others:
