The global mobile payments market, also known as mobile money, is concerned with the payment of bills using mobile mediums. This includes Short Messaging Services (SMSes), smartphone apps, Near Field Communication (NFC) and financial service providers such as Google and Ericsson. The idea of using the mobile payment market comes from avoiding the use of coin, currency, paper, and plastic media, such as cash, checks, credit/debit cards, and bank transactions. Micropayments form the majority bulk of the mobile payments market.
A key market driver for the mobile payments market is the technology progress in developing countries within underbanked communities. The use of mobile payments in developing and disaster-stricken countries like Haiti has influenced both private and public funding organizations alike, such as the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and MercyCorps. Key restraints in the mobile payments market include the non-availability of suitable technology to propagate the concept in underdeveloped countries, and low income families that cannot acquire an appropriate mobile payments medium. Inconveniences such as a constant need to verify and register over multiple networks might also prove to be a restraining factor for the market.
