It’s hard to disagree with anything Lowthers says. We agree that the need to provide mobile and frictionless commerce and the EMV rollouts were the two biggest and widespread stories of 2016. From iMobile3’s perspective, the adoption of in-app payments with digital wallets such as Apple Pay and Android Pay have also been tremendous. This has led to the huge upticks in m-commerce and mobile payments over the past 12 months and we suspect it will continue to grow in 2017.
