Forecast: Mobile Payments Continue to Rise
That’s the combined net worth of the world’s ten wealthiest billionaires, according to Forbes.
It’s also the value of payments people will make using their mobile devices around the globe this year, according to a new report from Juniper Research. That’s a 40% increase over last year – something for those billionaires to envy. For everybody else, this rapid growth in mobile payments is good news. For consumers, merchants and banks, it means we’re seeing the rise of seamless commerce that meshes with today’s mobile lifestyles both in emerging and developed countries.
