Mobile shopping in the United States grew from $396 million in 2008 to $1.2 Billion in 2009 with a 100% growth prediction for 2010 (ABI Research). New equipment and software manufacturers, wireless carriers and financial institutions are all scrambling to develop that killer platform to capture their share of this exploding market.

When & Where
The BayPay Forum
If you are a member of the payment industry, you are invited to join BayPay, a networking group of the Silicon Valley focused on payments and composed exclusively of members in the payment community or investors in this area. If you are not yet a member and would like to join, reply to this email to get your free membership with a quick description on how you fit in the payment industry. Even after all these years, the payments industry is still expanding in both mature and emerging markets worldwide as the industry adapts to new market opportunities. New technologies including contactless cards, cell phone integration, biometrics, RFID and strong authentication are emerging and potentially creating new challenges for both financial institutions and their customers. Prepaid cards, gift cards, new forms of payment like PayPal, are all vivid demonstrations of the vibrancy of new thinking in the payments industry. With wireless ubiquity now essentially a reality, transaction aggregation and micro payments become a necessity. As the financial industry and merchants provide more and more services online, phishing emerges as a problem that requires more education and communication with consumers.
Objective BayPay's primary goal is to provide a face-to-face professional networking forum for the regular exchange of views on these issues among active professionals within the payments industry who are located in the San Francisco Bay Area. An online BayPay group on Yahoo! provides opportunities for members to interact among themselves between regular face-to-face meetings.
