As online shopping is expected to be the fastest area of growth this holiday season, RealMoney Pro contributor Chris Versace explains that the trifecta of Amazon, Visa and UPS are best-positioned for success. Versace explains that many people will turn to Amazon for their purchases, which they'll need to pay for and ship using Visa and United Parcel Service. He says he expects this will be a highly competitive and promotional holiday shopping season, as evidenced by the fact that more retailers are opening their doors on Thanksgiving -- and at earlier hours, than last year. As a 'show-rooming' effect is also likely to take place from shoppers checking out products in person and then buying them online, Versace says he intends to gauge where consumers are spending their dollars by counting shopping bags, not just the number of individuals in stores.
