The world of mobile money is an exciting but complex one. The sector has moved firmly into the mainstream with an ecosystem that captures stakeholders from innovative startups to established mobile payment companies as well as MNOs card companies, banks and device manufacturers.  New services are continually being launched and trialed making this one of the most fluid and dynamic areas in mobile.

We’ve created a handy infographic to help define the key areas and players in the space. MEF’s member working group defines Mobile Money into six categories: in-store payments, online payments, P2P payments, direct operator billing, mobile wallets and mPos.
