 “Paym, the Payments Council’s new system for person to person mobile payments, is going to be a hit with young people. According to our research, over four million 18-30 year olds are already interested in transferring money to friends and family via a mobile number. It’s clear younger consumers continue to embrace any technology that makes managing their finances easier. By integrating into banking apps and leveraging their existing security credentials, this is a major step forward for mobile payments. Combined with only needing to know someone mobile number to make a payment, this is a welcome shift toward easier, more flexible money management and should help banks to attract and retain younger customers.”
