If we look at the mobile payments industry now, we will see that the gigantic shift of payment mediums is already in progress. Just some 14-15 years ago, stationary digital service channels (like self-service kiosks or digital banking platforms) were considered the peak of innovation in payments. But today we are already witnessing a rapid shift towards mobile as the new medium for most (if not all) digital financial services. In the last 8 years, the number of mobile users worldwide has quadrupled and projected to increase even further, according to Statista.
With more and more customers using smartphones as their primary channel to access digital services, we are rapidly entering the new paradigm called “mobile first”. With every year, customers view mobile financial services as something expected, rather than just a nice to have option. So this is something that definitely needs to be taken into consideration when launching a new payments service.
Another major shift in payments is happening with the payment cards, as contactless cards technology is rapidly becoming mainstream. For example, the volume of transactions made with contactless cards increased 10 times in just the last 3 years (according to Statista). With the rise of contactless POS infrastructure, new mobile payments technologies, such as Host Card Emulation (HCE), have also emerged. HCE technology allows to turn any Android smartphone, that is equipped with an NFC antenna, into a payments instrument, with which you can make make payments in any retail stores just as easily as with any contactless card.
As all of these trends unfold, the real question becomes – what is your organization doing today to capture consumer interest and capitalize on these trends? Do you wish to enter into mobile financial services, but are unsure where to start? Let us introduce you to one of the possible solutions.
