BusinessWeek fasst die jüngsten Entwicklungen (Schwerpunkt USA) im Mobile Payment/Banking zusammen.
To prevent any business disruptions, processors have been among the first to jump into mobile payments. First Data doesn’t see mobile payments as a threat: „We see it more as an extension of consumer choice,“ says Brian Friedman, vice-president of innovation for First Data financial institution services. It’s not taking chances, though, and is ramping up mobile efforts. On May 2, First Data invested in ViVOtech and has committed to using the startup’s hardware in offering contactless payments.
