Scan and Go: How Mobile Wallets are Transforming Retail

Brick-and-mortar merchants are in the midst of a period of unprecedented disruption. Long-term structural trends mean that retailers must address decreasing revenues and escalating costs, while evolving the in-store experience to meet the demands of the connected consumer. To be successful, however, retailers must focus innovation efforts on solutions that can immediately increase revenues, enhance the buying experience and deliver operational efficiencies. For this reason, transformative technologies such as mobile scan-and-go solutions are coming to the fore, with deployments across the world gaining momentum.

Account-based Payment Solutions

Real-time payments (RTP) and direct debit (ACH) payments – where transactions are made using account credentials rather than payment cards – are seeing increasing levels of fraud. Payment Account Tokenization leverages a proven process used to secure card payments to replace the valuable account credentials with non-sensitive, restricted use tokens. This process can significantly reduce the risk and impact of account-based fraud to support the development of a safe and secure instant payments framework. Over time, real account numbers will no longer be shared, meaning they cannot be stolen. The ability to tailor the security level of tokenization itself – by adding domain controls or cryptograms – will also be key as tokens used outside of their pre-defined parameters are easily identifiable and the transaction can be automatically declined.
