A Battle Emerging in Mobile Payments
By 2018, roughly 5 billion people had broadband subscriptions.
Mobile payment systems developed by Apple, Samsung, and Google used NFC chips, merchant banks and Visa or MasterCard to complete transactions wirelessly.
In Asia and Latin America mobile payment systems such as Alipay used QR codes. Still other competitors such as PayPal used a downloadable application and the Web to transmit a customer’s information.
In India and Africa, systems like Inter-Bank Mobile Payment Service and M-Pesa were enabling “unbanked” and “underbanked” people access to fast and inexpensive funds transfer.
