However, as the payment landscape evolves and sees emergence of other innovative payment models, what does the future hold for mobile wallets? Are there limitations to their success?

Panel Discussion 3: Digital market places & Payments
Marketplaces are an opportunity for payments processors. For most firms involved in processing payments, the business is about growing purchase volume and transactions – processing fees are based on either or both. Since marketplaces aggregate purchases made across many merchants, a payments provider can dramatically increase its processing volume and market share by winning the business of just a few marketplaces. It is likely that smaller payments processors may lose out in the process. What factors will decide the future?
