P-to-P and Mobile Payments

Recently, I've been doing a lot of research around the topic of p-to-p and mobile payments, and last week I came across the article "MasterCard to Enable P-to-P Mobile Payments by Cell Phone" written by Orla O'Sullivan in Bank Systems & Technology.

For those new to the space Obopay has clearly positioned themselves as one of the front-runners by forging relationships with ATT, Verizon, Blackberry, Citi, and now Mastercard. However, if you're looking for other potential vendors here's a list of names that I've been compiling:

Mporia


BilltoMobile

MPAYY


Paybox

M-Pesa


C-SAM

PayforIt


CPNI

Tyfone

Affinity Mobile


ISTS

Kabira


mChek


Mobibucks

Gemalto


PayPal


Paymate

TextPayMe

VoicePay

Oxicash

Kushcash

Mocapay

Payter

Mi-Pay


Paypay

thanks for supplying the list. i agree that Obopay is clearly a front-runner. in your research can you comment on how each provider compares their services to their competition? in your opinion, which of these providers offers the most value?

I realy wonder no to see the pioneer in mobile P2P, Crandy (www.crandy.com). Crandy was the first actor in Europe in 2004 launching such offer. Crandy is doing now international remittances between Europe and Africa via mobile.

brandon,
thanks for making this list.
I'm actually trying to get a job in this industry so I have taken the time to identify as many companies and experts as possible.

You can view both of those lists from my blog's http://www.poorbillionaire.com/ right navigation menu.

I've added your list to it and I spend an hour every week trying to make it as exhaustive as possible.
