M-payments



Global m-payment transactions are expected to grow 97 percent per year, over the next 3 years, reaching a value of £591 billion by 2015.

 

The growth will be fuelled by consumer demand for devices with ‘near field technology’ – tablets and smart-phones able to interact with scanners at the point-of-sale and immediately transfer funds.

 

It will also be driven by consumers’ growing desire to shop in environments that are ‘always on, always fast and always accessible’.
