Payments Solution

Cellphone Payments

For financial institutions (FIs), the stress on revenue resources has recently intensified due to increased competition for deposits, higher costs to service customers and heightened government scrutiny on fee income, all of which threaten to reduce overall profits. As a result, FIs are facing mounting pressure to both protect their existing revenue streams and to uncover new sources of revenue.

One answer is to extend payments—a revenue source that is already very familiar to FIs— to the mobile channel. Mobile payments offer tremendous revenue potential for FIs. The total value of mobile payment transactions will reach $670 billion worldwide by 2015. Moreover, 84 percent of FI executives said that mobile payments will have significant importance to their business within the next one to four years, and 73 percent suggested that mobile payments would be mainstream within the next four years.
