(Videos) Last Day of The Media and Telecom Conference: Mobile Payment Discussion.

3 Jun, 2009

During the second day of the 6th Media and Telecommunications Convergence Conference which was concluded yesterday in Amman-Jordan, We live streamed via my mobile few sessions, and we also held a mobile payment panel discussion between 3 involved parties from Jordan and UK: Janit Abdallah, Director of Business Development of PayNet a Jordanian based joint venture between Visa Jordan and Specialized Technical Services (STS), which provides regional e-payment processing service, Karmel Manasrah, Product Sales Manger-Telecom of the Jordanian Telecom and Enterprise software company, Eskadenia and Pretti Johansson Chief Wireless Officer of the UK based mobile banking and payments company, Monities.

Mobile payment is a hot topic now a days, Juniper Research forecasts that Service Provider revenues, derived from mobile money transfer services and remittances, will exceed $5bn globally by 2013 – based on the commissions and charges that they will acquire from the gross value of money transactions made, both domestically within countries and internationally. In the emerging countries including the Arab countries, credit cards are not wide spread, so the Mobile payment solution would provide an alternative mechanize for payment and money transfer online and offiline, M-PESA for example has been doing well in Africa, also mPayment if done in an easy and secure way would me more convenient than any e-payment method. In his part Janti delivered a presentation during the conference titled “How soon can the Arab world accept mPayment?” Here is the slideshow:
