Electronic Transactions Association Releases Resources for Mobile Payment Solutions Reply

On February 19, the Electronic Transactions Association’s (ETA) Mobile Payments Committee released three resources to help firms navigate emerging issues in the mobile payments market. The Committee is an industry-wide task force of representatives from credit card networks, processors, mobile network operators, developers, financial institutions, and device manufacturers. The first resource, “Best Practices and Guidelines for Mobile Payment Solutions,” addresses security, privacy and competition issues relevant to merchants, consumers, federal and state legislators, federal regulators, merchant acquirers, credit card issuers, and infrastructure providers. In the second, a white paper entitled “Beyond the Hype: Mobile Payments for Merchants,” the Committee provides a comprehensive overview of the current state of mobile payments, as well as analysis of the risks and costs for merchants to consider before deploying mobile payments solutions. Finally, the Committee issued a “Mobile Payments Glossary of Terms.”
