Mobile Payments Lead The Way

ops_mobile_image_blog.pngVarious studies have shown that mobile payments are dramatically gaining ground. This new culture of changing technology is paving the way and an increasing amount of companies are still yet to meet consumer demand. OPS allows you to take payments from your customers on any Internet or 3G connected mobile device, this includes PDQ machines, smartphones and tablet technologies.

Even some of the country's biggest high-street brands such as New Look, Topshop and Next, offer customers a convenient way to pay for their goods and services with a mobile payment solution. What's more, these brands are determined to invest in depth in the mobile platforms as a way to maximise sales. So why shouldn’t any business that accepts payments?

Ebay has predicted that mobile payments will be worth £2.5 billion by 2016 and Gartner reckons the value of mobile payment transactions will exceed $171.5 billion in 2012 which is a 62 per cent increase since 2011. Additionally, it is expected that the number of mobile payment users will reach 212.2 million by the end of 2012. Considering that out of the seven billion people on our planet, 5.9 billion have a smart phone, it is easy to see the potential in the mobile transaction industry. Some would claim that it is very  promising.

Visa CEO Peter Ayliffe predicted that by 2020 more than 50 per cent of our transactions are going to be carried out on mobile phones. This implies that all the transactions must be done under high-levels of security, and this is why OPS has invested in security measurements like PCI DSS.

Proof in the pot that mobile is the way forward is that popular brands like Starbucks, Dunkin Donuts and O2 have adopted mobile payment system too. Before we know it any business that accepts payments will have a mobile payment solution. OPS mobile payment system is a necessity because it is PCI DSS compliant which means you can retain the confidence of your customers.
