Summary

Payments are moving from cash based to cash-less transaction. Across the globe consumers are shifting towards more convenient, faster and more secure channels of payment like online banking or prepaid cards. A number of companies are also testing technologies that let customers make payments with mobile phones. In developing countries like India, online third party fund transfers provided by banks are also considered an alternative payment channel. Electronic payments are gradually displacing paper-based payments as the preferred means of transaction in many countries. While online payment services or e-commerce are more prominent in developed economies owing to the high penetration of the internet, mobile payments have considerable reach in emerging economies like India, China, Brazil and Kenya as there are more mobile phones than bank accounts in these countries. These changing trends are creating opportunities for established as well as start-up companies offering a plethora of alternative payment instruments. The online and mobile payment market is expected to undergo substantial growth with even some government institutions supporting the development of alternative payment channels across various sectors.
