Investments in mobile payments, contactless cards & virtual cards and in real-time payment transactions will boom in 2016. Banks to take the lead as of a new Ovum research.
We will also see nice growth in inapp mobile payments, digital & mobile wallets, mobile cloud-based payments and not to forget in mobile value addedVAS like digital receipts, mobile/virtual gift cards & vouchers, loyalty & membership cards and of course a continuous growth in mobile coupons and offers.
It will also be interesting if we during 2016 could see solutions for cross-border authentication and real-time payments. And when/will Zapp launch in UK, MasterPass go live for in-store payments, CurrentC (by MCX) be launched, what country/countries Apple Pay will launch in Europe after Spain, and when will Android Pay and Samsung Pay and LG Pay come to Europe? And finally when/will Sony, HTC and the other mobile manufacturers launch their own wallets?
Plus more, giving that we all will have a very interesting new year to look forward to!
