Australian-based Commonwealth Bank announced Wednesday (Feb. 21) that its customers would now be able to make contactless payments via Samsung Electronics’ mobile wallet, Samsung Pay.
We’re getting lost in the weeds, talking tactics when we should be talking about the real problems that innovation in payments must solve for consumers — and ultimately their businesses. Karen Webster says that’s the conversation that mobile wallets, in particular, need to have with themselves in 2018 to remain relevant. But not for the reasons you think.
Apple Pay Cash is reportedly coming to more countries, with users in Brazil, Ireland and Spain reporting seeing the payment service appear on their Messenger app.
LG Electronics, the South Korean technology company, is gearing up to roll out a mobile payment system for U.S. consumers.
Payments has by and large been a growth business for the last half decade or so, and that fact has been mappable in scores of innovations around the world. But, as PYMNTS’ Karen Webster pointed out, for all of those advances, one is conspicuously missing from the list — and that’s despite years of predictions that its ignition was just around the corner.
Google announced the launch of its new mobile app for viewing and managing payments across platforms, cards and other payment methods, in addition to plans for making the Google Pay capability accessible to all — no matter what device they’re using, no matter where they’re shopping and no matter whether they’ve established an account on a Google property before.
The latest mobile wallet adoption study results, done in partnership with InfoScout, are in — and the results seem clear. Find out who flunked the test, who passed the mid-term with flying colors and who looks like there could be a spark starting to emerge. All the details with lots of charts and graphs, too.
