Mobile payment users to increase 70% this year

Research company Gartner says the number of mobile payment users around the world will increase by 70.4% this year – up from 43.1 million in 2008 to 73.4 million people. It says the number of mobile payment users will exceed 190 million in 2012, accounting for over 3% of all mobile phone users around the world. The company’s definition of ‘mobile payments’ includes text message, online and NFC transactions but excludes networks' own billing systems and payments made via voice calls. [Press release; report]
