Mobile credit card processing has been the fastest growing trend in credit card processing over the last two years, Mobile payment apps, like Google Wallet and Apple Pay, have begun to account for a considerable portion of retail and merchant sales in the last 24 months. And it stands to reason: What could be more important to consumers using credit cards than the convenience of purchasing?
Major retailers like Walmart and Starbucks have already noticed the growing trend, with upwards of 20% of purchases being made through mobile credit apps. In addition, with growing safety concerns and more consumers becoming worried about identity theft and credit fraud, mobile payment applications provide both convenience and security, without ever having to swipe a credit card again. Consumers are beginning to expect more retailers to have mobile payment processing options, and small and medium sized businesses could be losing out on business if they are slow to adjust.

Apple has finally released its highly anticipated mobile pay application, known as Apple Pay, and it has become the fastest growing mobile payment application in the world. More and more people are moving to mobile payment programs, choosing to leave their plastic at home and store payment information on their smart phone. It has competition though, from Google Wallet, Mobile Wallet, Softcard and a number of other mobile applications designed to make checking out at your favorite store easy and secure. What this means is that the nature of business transactions, at cash registers and point of sale systems across the nation, is changing as well.
Apple currently processes more credit cards than even Amazon, and as the technology continues to grow, the number of users who could switch from traditional credit cards to Apple Pay will only increase.
