Pas une semaine sans que David Marcus, le CEO de  Paypal, »NFC Not The Answer for Retailers, Says PayPal ou d’autres acteurs du paiement en ligne comme Buyster « Les marchands n’ont pour l’instant pas les moyens de s’équiper en NFC » ne critiquent la technologie NFC, dans une interview ou une conférence, ce week-end encore dans le blog des Echos par la directrice générale de Paypal France.

PayPal restructures to focus on mobile - PaymentEye

PayPal restructures to focus on mobile - PaymentEye | Mobility & Financial Services | Scoop.it

PayPal is reorganising its business around mobile, merging several product groups and promoting execs to head up the new divisions. The firm's new president, David Marcus, is attempting to unify PayPal's services in a bid to shed "unneeded complexity" and, more importantly, keep merchants and consumers onside. The reshuffle also marks PayPal's ongoing focus on mobile as it attempts to keep up with younger competitors such as Square in the burgeoning mobile payments space. "Mobile is simpler by definition. Starting product designs from mobile will force the elimination of features introducing unneeded complexity," writes Marcus in a company post. As part of the restructure, the online, offline and mobile payments groups will merge into a single mobile group led by global head of product Hill Furguson. The firm will also merge its Americas regional organisation with its global financial services group, with the merged group led by former BillMeLater CEO Gary Marino.

Katia Hilal's insight:

Validation with personal photography, no financial data is sent to the shop or kept on the phone. This is looking quite easy. There still is the hurdle of opening the app on the phone, and having it live while the transaction takes place.

PayPal has announced the launch of its 'pre-paid cash card' that consumers can buy in-store and use to top up their accounts for online purchases. The PayPal My Cash Card has been developed with pre-paid specialist InComm for Americans who don't have bank accounts or cards, or do not want to use them online.

This is a major step for PayPal to reach the unbanked which will enable them to move to emerging markets where this population represents the majority of consumers.
