Mobile & Advanced Payments

Strategy advice covering mobile payments, digital wallets, alternative payments and other payment technologies & innovations

Edgar, Dunn & Company is a recognised thought leader in the field of advanced payments. Our annual Advanced Payments Report is now in its 10th year.

Mobile payments and wallets continue to cause a
stir in the payments industry. Early wallets rolled out by mobile network operators (MNOs) struggled to attract consumers. Apple Pay has significantly revived the sagging interest in mobile payments and has been quickly followed by Samsung Pay and Android Pay. In today’s digitally connected world, payments cannot be detached from the broader fabric of integrated financial services and technology trends including blockchain and the Internet of Things (IoT). Future successful systems of value exchange will be entirely digital. The key to success for all forms of commerce will be a seamless, efficient and secure payment experience.

We have extensive experience and expertise in advanced payments including: contactless, online, mobile, digital wallets, cross border remittances, tokenisation, EMV, Blockchain – to name a few.
