Disbursements Tracker – December 2019
December 19, 2019
How can mobile wallets be used to support faster disbursements?
“For companies looking to offer instant payments, mobile is a critical consideration. Consumers demand the choice and flexibility of mobile-based transactions and payments because it aligns with today’s smartphone lifestyle. This is undeniable when you consider that mobile phone use has grown from 48.8% of the world’s population in 2014 to 63.4% in 2019 and that 29% of U.S. consumers say they would like to pay with their smartphone all the time.
Fortunately, mobile wallets actually enhance instant payments platforms because beyond naturally supporting the speed and convenience of a solution, they also contribute technically to its deployment.
Mobile wallets inherently provide strong account ownership verification controls that bolster risk management tools, making them a safer and more reliable option for disbursements. At the same time, folding mobile wallets into the mix enhances reliability and certainty because it expands available payments rails and enables redundancy.
And when you consider that one of the key differentiators of any modern payments experience is choice in funding and receiving accounts, then adding mobile wallet options to a disbursements marketplace is now table stakes.”
