One of the latest additions to the functionality of a smartphone is as a mobile wallet. This allows consumers to use their phone as a virtual debit card, where contactless payment technology is used and you touch your phone on a contactless reader to make a transaction.
It has been announced that the worldwide market will go from more than £20 billion in 2014 to £3,200 billion in 2020, this indicates a significant growth rate per year. This has brought interest to many of the supply industry leaders to become involved in the mobile wallet space.
In several years, mobile wallets are expected to streamline the payment process and offer consumers a simple way to make purchases. Smartphone manufacturers also see the benefit in investing in this space as it gives another advantage in a highly competitive market place. Apple and Google already have plans to integrate the payment infrastructure on their devices. However initially, more work and further testing is required before these systems are widely used.
Businesses that wish to integrate this particular contactless payment method will require experts skilled in customer relationship management (CRM).
