Research and Markets: Concise Analysis of International Online Payment Methods - Second half of 2013
DUBLIN --(Business Wire)--
Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/8jjfnm/global_online)
has announced the addition of the "Concise
Analysis of International Online Payment Methods - Second half of 2013"
report to their offering.
Online and mobile payment methods continue global growth.
The Global Online Payment Methods 2013 - Second Half 2013 report
indicates that the practice of online payment continues its inexorable
growth, driven by fast growing E-Commerce. Recent improvements in
security and convenience of payments are expected to spur further growth.
Several developments in recent months point to increased competition on
global online ad mobile payment markets: Visa, MasterCard (News - Alert) and American
Express have proposed a new security standard for online payments;
startups such as SumUP and iZettle have introduced a payment service
below the standard merchant fee; PayPal launched an improved application
for its mobile wallet; and Google (News - Alert) Wallet launched a physical prepaid
card. Further, the virtual currency Bitcoin has been gaining increased
attention of consumers, merchants, payment providers, and governments.
The report also indicates that consumers globally are showing interest
in mobile payments: mobile device users surveyed say they plan to make
future mobile payments, especially in emerging markets. Mobile payments
are forecasted to reach over EUR 150 billion worldwide in 2013, with
strong double-digit growth for the next four years. Growth of
non-banking mobile payments is projected to be stronger than banking
payments, but the latter will continue to dominate through 2014.
Forecasts for NFC payments growth have been decreased due to lower than
expected acceptance. Growth rates, however, are expected to take off
