The Mobile Wallet: The Next Big Payment Tool?

The mobile wallet could be the next big payment tool due to the rise in smartphone adoption and corporate initiatives, states Michelle Evans, consumer finance analyst at Euromonitor. Canada may be the first country to implement the mobile wallet country-wide, as many retailers have already adopted contactless payment in their point-of-sale (POS) terminals.
