Mobile Wallet FAQ
Q: What is a Mobile Wallet?
A: The term, “Mobile Wallet” refers to the combined technologies that allow consumers and business owners to use their smartphones to do things like:
- Pay for online purchases
- Make in-store purchases
- Manage credit & debit cards as well as checking & savings accounts digitally
- Purchase for digital content
- Receive offers, coupons & specials
- Manage rewards or customer loyalty cards
- Set up automatic transfers or cash-loads for business purposes
- Transfer funds rapidly & inexpensively between other Mobile Wallet account holders
Newer phones and mobile devices that feature NFC (Near Field Communication) technology can allow Mobile Wallet users to “bump” their device for tap-to-pay payment processors.
Mobile Wallet technology allows convenient, secure and integrated online and offline payments. BusinessInsider.com forecasts that there will be over 34 MILLION proximity mobile payment users by the end of 2015 and 48.1 MILLION users by the end of 2016!
