“The wireless payments market is rapidly evolving and complex,” notes Isabella Fonseca, author of the report. "In the past 12 months, a number of vendors have applied their Internet payment and wireless technology expertise to create mobile-based payment systems. To date, the race to rapidly expand their services to retail customers highlights the need for financial financial institutions to turn to vendor provided solutions.”

She added, “We foresee banks playing a direct role in the wireless payment space, after all, people strongly trust their banks to keep their payment information securely. Wireless payments offerings are the next strategic technology initiative for leading retail banks.”

The report provides detailed information on the vendors’ offerings, examining a number of criteria, including ease of use, payments supported, flexibility, multi-channel support, deployment time, deployment method, and experience in the e-payments business.
