Making the Case for In-Person Mobile Payments

Proximity mobile payments continue to garner the most attention as the technology of the future from the payments industry. Consumers, though, still express concern over security and don't have the incentive to adopt mobile as a new payment habit. Starbucks is the current market leader in mobile payments apps integrated with loyalty programs. This video makes the case for integrating mobile into payments and loyalty strategies for a wider base of retailers and service providers. Watch for complete insights.

Back in 2007, Apple set off a smartphone revolution when it introduced the iPhone to market. While some industry observers back then doubted the potential of the iPhone to impact the mobile industry — let alone payments — it has nevertheless jumpstarted a smartphone revolution. Of course, other mobile phone manufacturers have since followed suit to make the smartphone one of the most popular consumer devices on the planet today.

This plethora of such devices has set into motion generational shifts in a number of industries, including payments, retailing, foodservice and travel. The increased availability of smartphones has ushered in new ways of conducting commerce and executing payments. In addition, these technological advances have ushered in a new consumer type — a connected one. Despite all the hype surrounding the potential of in-person or proximity mobile payments, remote mobile commerce accounted for 98% of mobile payments made globally in the 46 markets researched by Euromonitor International.

Security Lessons from the Cartes America Conference

Michelle EvansAnalyst Insight by Michelle Evans - Senior Consumer Finance Analyst

View Michelle Evans's profile on LinkedIn

Cartes Secure Connexions America took place in May in Washington DC. This conference, which attracts global professionals in the payments, identity and mobility industries, was largely focused on security trends, with a great emphasis on the US migration to chip-based cards and security as it relates to future mobile payments scenarios.

US playing catch-up to the rest of the world

The US is the last developed market to still predominately use magnetic strip cards instead of the chip-based cards, which are so commonplace in every other corner of the world. Of course, that is changing as the US is in the midst of a transition to become compliant with EMV, short for Europay-MasterCard-Visa standards.

Creating the use case for the mobile wallet

Remote mobile payments in 2014 accounted for nearly 98% of all mobile payments made globally in the 46 markets researched by Euromonitor International. Nevertheless, the mobile payment type that has continued to garner the most attention from industry observers is proximity mobile payments. This type of payment has become the Holy Grail for many in the industry due to the immense benefits that surround a mobile-enabled experience.

American Express's Plenti Launch

Kendrick SandsAnalyst Insight by Kendrick Sands - Senior Consumer Finance Analyst

View Kendrick Sands's profile on LinkedIn

The first US coalition loyalty programme which allows point transfers across companies was recently launched by American Express. The initial merchant partners include AT&T, Exxon, Macy’s, Mobil, Nationwide, Rite Aid, Direct Energy, Enterprise and Hulu. The innovative reward platform has a variety of unique selling points and has potential for American Express to reach a wide range of additional US consumers. Following the loss of the network’s co-branded exclusivity agreement with Costco as well as JetBlue, the network faces a significant decline in total processed payment value in 2016. To offset this decline the network has looked to other co-branded agreements and pre-paid and digital platforms. The acquisition of Loyalty Partner in 2011 by American Express for US$685 million sharpened the network’s focus on international loyalty programmes and has since proved successful in Germany, Poland and India. The network has long been known to offer lucrative benefits to its affluent and corporate clientele and has been aggressively trying to capture consumers outside of these segments with limited success in recent years. The Plenti platform, if additional merchant partners are included, could have the potential to do so.
