Mobile Payments II: The business models behind mobile payments

Part 2 of 2 in a series that focuses on fintech-led payment digitalization, this report compares how much revenue PayPal, Apple Pay, Google Pay, Amazon Pay, Alipay, and Samsung Pay make from their transactions.

Technology that allows mobile devices to initiate a payment transaction continues to spread, accelerated by COVID-19 measures. Many questions remain, however, on several of the fintech innovators behind this process. How big are the payment methods from these companies? Is their business profitable? How will things look in the future? This study is unique in that it aims to provide insights in a part of the mobile payment segment that for a long time have not been readily available before.

This report can be read together with "Mobile Payments I: The many faces of global mobile payments", but the two studies can stand on their own from each other.
