Mobile payment refers to the use of a mobile device, such as a smartphone or tablet, to make transactions for goods and services. This form of payment has gained significant popularity in recent years due to its convenience and efficiency. Compared to traditional methods, such as cash or card payments, mobile payment allows individuals to make transactions without physical contact, making it an increasingly preferred choice in today's digital age. There are several types of mobile payment systems. Some work through dedicated apps where users link their bank accounts or credit cards to pay by simply scanning a QR code or tapping their device on a payment terminal. Some commonly used devices include Apple Pay and Google Pay. Also, there are carrier billing services that enable users to charge purchases directly to their mobile phone bill. Security features, including biometric authentication, encryption, and tokenization, add layers of safety, making mobile payments as secure, if not more so, than traditional payment methods. It offers the ability to track and manage spending more effectively, making it a multifaceted tool for modern financial management.

Partnerships between banks, fintech startups, and tech giants are becoming more common, aimed at creating user-friendly interfaces and offering value-added services, such as loyalty points, discounts, and cashback offers. The interoperability between different payment systems also adds to the ease of use, making it more appealing for consumers to switch from traditional payment methods to mobile payments. Besides, the integration of advanced technologies, including biometric verification and blockchain, is providing an additional layer of security, making mobile payments more trustworthy.
