obile Payments have emerged as a catalyst
for transactions across all markets.
In underdeveloped markets, mobile payment
technology is enabling businesses to sell products
and services to consumers that had previously been
out of reach.
In developed markets, it has made the process of
purchasing products and services even simpler.
PayPal, one of the most popular digital payment
solutions on the market, facilitated $66 billion in
payment volume throughout 2015, and now has
188 million active registered user accounts across
the US. Furthermore, Statista projects that mobile

time the transition to mobile payments is complete.
The reason? A failure to implement the correct
mobile payment strategy.
