Abstract

Since 2011 the authors have researched and designed mobile payments applications for mature and emerging markets. Building on our extended research in the mobile payments domain across different markets, and drawing upon the identification of global trends in social and payments mobile services, we derive design implications and recommendations for mobile P2P payment experiences.
