The Digital Wallets Wars Are the Next Phase of the Payments Industry Transformation | Forrester Blogs

The Digital Wallets Wars Are the Next Phase of the Payments Industry Transformation | Forrester Blogs | Payments 2.0 | Scoop.it

In this August 2, 2012 blog post, Forrester analyst Denée Carrington summarizes the conclusions of her report titled “Why The Digital Wallet Wars Matter"

- Winning wallets will be convenient to use, contextually relevant, with a compelling experience.
