When will smartphones replace our wallets?

Pay by Phone

Just as 8-Tracks led to tapes, tapes, led to CDs, and CDs led to MP3s, so too is that way we do our transactions changing.

Will credit cards and even cash someday be replaced by mobile devices as the preferred method of payment when out in real life?

That’s the question that CreditSesame attempts to answer by taking a look at the way society is heading with regards to mobile payment mechanisms.

“What’s in your wallet?”

Perhaps the better question someday will be, “Why do you still carry a wallet?”

I can’t help but think how convenient this will be for consumers and how so many industries are already starting to jump on board. Brands are acknowledging that yes, this is a natural progression but more so, accepting that these advancements in mobile technology will not just benefit consumers but also benefit the brand.
