Mobile and Alternative Payments in the U.S., 3rd Edition

The mobile payments industry stands at the epicenter of tremendous innovation and change, with market participants introducing a slew of emerging payments solutions—from Square to Google Wallet to Popmoney to Serve to V.me. Thanks to the widespread adoption of smartphones, the consumer audience now has the means to use them; however, they still may not be accustomed to or even well informed about the new topography of the payment landscape.

The industry also serves as a nexus connecting the often competing interests of wireless carriers, phone manufacturers, payments networks, merchant acquirers, card associations, point-of-sale technology providers, nonbanking payment solution providers, banks, and retailers. At stake is the transformation of the consumer wallet—and the control traditional payment players have historically had over it—as well as the possibility of new revenue streams generated by data analytics, advertising, and other value-added products and services, above and beyond merchant payment fee revenue.

Even with mobile payments still in its nascent stage, Packaged Facts expects U.S. remote and point-of-sale mobile payments volume to grow by 275% in 2013, a testament to the impact of current product rollouts and consumer uptake already underway.

Mobile and Alternative Payments in the U.S. provides industry participants with the wealth of analysis and guidance they need to stay abreast of this quickly evolving market. Report coverage includes market sizing and forecast for U.S. mobile payments, as well as a comprehensive evaluation of competitor dynamics:
  • Mobile payments strategies employed by the leading U.S. card associations, including American Express’ prepaid card innovation and Serve digital platform innovation, Discover Financial Services’ alternative payments strategy and PayPal and Google Wallet relationships, MasterCard PayPass and PayPass Wallet Services, and Visa V.me

Mobile and Alternative Payments in Canada

Mobile payments are gaining a foothold in Canada: Of an estimated 22 million Canadian adult mobile phone users, some 17% have made a mobile payment in past 12 months, according to Packaged Facts’ survey results. But in this very nascent-stage market, the issue comes down to the method of payment. Despite Canada’s solid contactless point-of-sale base, we see significant challenges for NFC-based mobile payments. However, mobile P2P has already taken hold, and we expect mobile P2P to continue to lead Canadian mobile payments growth, thanks in large part to PayPal and Zoompass, already popular P2P methods straddling online and mobile payments. While QR code awareness is low, our consumer survey results suggest that mobile payers are twice as likely to use a barcode scanning apps during the next 12 months than during the last 12 months. And with Starbucks’ Canadian rollout of its barcode scan-based mobile payment application, usage—and interest—could rise.

Packaged Facts expects Canadian E-Wallet and electronic P2P payments to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 62% during 2012-2015, on the heels of recent and expected mobile payments launches and subsequent consumer uptake.
