More signs of mobile payments popularity
February 05, 2013

Mobile payments are rapidly becoming the preferred transaction method of most consumers, as well as merchants and government agencies. Advanced integrated payment systems can help decrease operational expenditures and improve engagement among customers. Merchants need to consider acquiring these solutions to remain competitive in the increasingly cashless market landscape.

Other entities are beginning to launch mobile payment programs as well, illustrating the impending cashless society many economists believe will take form in the coming decades. The Chappaqua-Mount Kisco Patch recently reported that commuters in Chappaqua, New York, will now be able to make payments using their smartphones.

According to the news provider, the system is meant to improve the commuting experience for citizens in the town, and can be accessed through all major smartphones and tablets, including iPhones, iPads and Android-powered devices. The source added that the program includes a component that will notify individuals when they need to refill their accounts, while no cash will be necessary to make the payments.

Small and medium-sized businesses should consider using Sage Mobile Payments, as this product will help them integrate all transaction processing functions quickly and adapt to the increasing consumer preference to use smartphones and tablets for shopping.
