The market for mobile payment options is constantly astir. It is currently expanding to include a new component that seeks to appeal to smaller businesses as well as to larger companies who already possess a checkout system. NCR, a globally operating US firm and market leader in the field of cash dispensing machines, scanner checkout systems and data warehousing, recently announced that it would release NCR Silver as a new product starting in June 2012.
Square and Starbucks Expand Their Mobile Payment Services
Blog Post11th April 2012
Progress continues to be made in the world of mobile payment services. The mobile payment provider Square is expanding its app to include the option of paying without a credit card, while Starbucks is also integrating new functions into its app. This points to the fact that already established providers of new payment systems are striving to further improve their services.
For almost two years, companies and start-ups from various sectors have changed the market of mobile payments. Some of the products and services developed by these companies/start-ups have already been successfully placed on the market, and some new solutions have been announced. The current status of development, however, does not reveal whether one of the existing products will prevail with respect to mobile, cashless payments or whether one of the future solutions will pave the way towards mass market adoption.
