Why accept payments from Mobile Wallets?

Local payment methods currently represent 70% of online transactions. And by 2026, mobile wallets will exceed 5.2 billion users globally. This global uptake is projected to continue, particularly in emerging markets which have traditionally been financially underserved.

However, the mobile wallet market faces its own set of challenges. There are currently 300+ platforms, each with its own set of features, limitations and user bases. In order to access different markets, companies need to integrate each mobile wallet provider separately. This lack of interoperability eats into engineering resources and hampers business growth.

And this is where Thunes comes in. With one API integration, our partners benefit from access to our global network, to make accepting mobile wallet payments seamless and straightforward.
