MEF Webinar | RCS Payments: Realising the Potential
What if consumers could make a payment inside a mobile messaging conversation? RCS brings rich features to the default messaging app in the next generation of smartphones. Integrating payments into RCS offers a new way to buy products and services, which is highly convenient. No web pages to navigate or apps to download. True conversational commerce; the ability to buy and goods and services via a simple digital conversation.
It’s early days for RCS and the payments landscape event more landscape. Operators can use existing APIs to process DCB payments in the background – as if an RCS message were an SMS message. Brands can also route users outside an RCS message session to a specialist web payment page for card payments.
To make it a seamless experience enabling a quick & secure purchase contained inside the RCS app, the industry needs to agree technical specifications and accelerate with trialling uses cases. In this webinar, MEF members explore the potential of RCS & Payments and look at the benefits and key requirements for seamless payments in RCS Business Messaging which will deliver new revenues for MNOs, messaging providers and payment providers alike.
