There is a growing push around the globe toward technology-enabled financial inclusion of the masses at the bottom of the pyramid and of small businesses. Mobile-enabled technology is seen to be a catalyst to achieve this goal, as mobility leads to faster deployment and improved quality of services. Moreover, mobility-based solutions are cost effective and offer ease of use. Mobility has led to the emergence of new business models in the payment space, driving innovation in the way financial transactions happen. A key aspect for the success of emerging models is the convergence of the diverse needs of merchants, customers, telecom operators, banks, and device vendors.
Mobile point-of-sale (mPOS) refers to specialized integrated devices such as tablets and smartphones that are capable of functioning as electronic point-of-sale terminals. These smartphones and tablets can also be converted into payment terminals through the use of dongles or sleeves. Countries such as the U.S., the U.K., and Japan have seen faster adoption of mPOS during the last few years due to favorable conditions such as high card penetration and a large installed base of smartphone and Internet users. Other economies, such as China, India, Brazil, and Mexico, are fast becoming key areas of investment for players involved in the mPOS ecosystem due to a combination of favorable macroeconomic factors. These include a rapidly growing smartphone base, a large number of small and micro merchants, and favorable government policies.
