Mercator Advisory Group's new report, Single-Merchant Wallets: Mobile Payments for the Immediate Future, compares single-merchant wallets with universal ones, classifies the two major types of single-merchant mobile wallets, and describes which merchants are in the best position to implement the two types. The report also profiles multiple solutions currently available for consumers and forecasts the growth pattern for single-merchant wallets, with a particular focus on the effect of universal mobile wallet proliferation.
