Mobile Financial Services
The mobile financial services sector continued to expand in 2014, boosted by the creation of more enabling regulatory frameworks in several markets. With 255 mobile money services in operation across 89 countries, mobile money services are now available in over 60% of developing markets.
Active mobile money accounts stand at 103 million as of December 2014 (up from 73 million in 2013). In terms of transaction volumes, the fastest growth in 2014 occurred in:
- bulk disbursements
- bill payments
- merchant payments
This reflects an expanding ecosystem of institutional and business users of mobile money. These transactions represented nearly a quarter (23.1%) of all the value processed through mobile money systems globally in December 2014, demonstrating the growing importance of mobile money as a payments channel for goods and services.

Canada Mobile Payments uses Interchange message specifications (International Organization for Standardization- ISO 8583) standard for systems that exchange electronic transactions made by cardholders using payment cards.
- A card-based transaction typically travels from a transaction acquiring device: point-of-sale terminal or an automated teller machine (ATM), through a series of networks, to a card issuing system for authorization against the card holder’s account.
- The transaction data contains information derived from the card (e.g., the account number), the terminal (e.g., the merchant number), the transaction (e.g., the amount), together with other data which may be generated dynamically or added by intervening systems.
- The card issuing system will either authorize or decline the transaction and generate a response message which must be delivered back to the terminal within a predefined time period.
