Research and Markets: Mobile Point-of-Sale (m-POS) Acquiring Solutions

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/j4jmcf/mobile) has announced the addition of the "Mobile Point-of-Sale (m-POS) Acquiring Solutions" report to their offering.

New Research Addresses Recent Trends And Product Development In M-Pos In The United States And Europe

Mobile point-of-sale (m-POS) acquiring solutions such as Square and PayPal enable small merchants to accept card payments and other electronic payments, and they offer convenience and other benefits to consumers and larger merchants. But many questions remain to be answered for the acquiring industry in the United States and globally to determine the best way to proceed. For instance, the acquiring business continues to deal with how to transition from traditional acceptance devices to devices that accept EMV chip cards, contactless payments, Quick Response (QR) code, Cloud, Bluetooth Smart (Bluetooth low energy, or BLE), marketing offers redemption, and mobile wallets. These innovations demand rapid structural change, and industry participants have to hedge their bets on these technologies in the interim.

This new report on the US and European m-POS Acquiring Solutions market, Mobile Point-of-Sale (m-POS) Acquiring Solutions addresses these questions and provides the reader an update on some of the key vendors in this space.

In particular, this report discusses the importance of m-POS acquiring solutions, provides the reader an understanding of the emerging technology developments in the space, pricing strategies by these providers, how financial institutions need to address this market by either building a product or partnering with a solution provider, some of the challenges of the business both in the U.S. and Europe and new product development/innovations that a few of these providers are developing to meet the growing needs of both the merchant and the consumer.

The m-POS acquiring market and solutions continue to grow in the United States and Europe, comments Pradeep Moudgal, author of the report. The m-POS acquirers/providers that are opportunistic with their technologies, pricing, and user experience will have the most success in the years ahead.

In this Power Panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists addressed this very serious issue of pro...

Digital Transformation means: handling all the data types being found and created in the organizat...
