Payment Trends

Millions of consumers now are armed with mobile wallets, but their use of them is being held back, essentially because the wallets are no more convenient to use than credit and debit cards. Moreover, the payment-acceptance systems in use today are equally functioning well.

For the industry as a whole, these represent major factors that must be overcome if mobile payment is to emerge as viable a alternative, according to Chris Colson, director of innovation at TSYS. In a recent podcast interview with MPD CEO Karen Webster, Colson provided a brief overview of a soon-to-be-released TSYS white paper on mobile wallets and his insights into where TSYS views the market is heading.

To learn more Colson’s views of the mobile-payments landscape, listen to the full podcast.
