The future of mobile payments – are there too many options that are confusing consumers and merchants?

“Merchants are still slowly upgrading their retail point of sale (POS) systems to support various mobile payment options while new payment options keep showing up. No merchants have provided a complete list of payment solutions that their POS terminals support, neither do payment solution providers offer a complete and up-to-date list of merchants accepting their respective solutions. Consumers have to second-guess which payment option they could use. In a situation like this, a consumer usually uses his credit card instead.”, says Harry Wang, Senior Director of Research at Parks Associates.
