Messaging Platforms and Payments

Venture-investor Mary Meeker says mobile messaging is evolving to combine context, identity, and persistence into central (always on) communication hubs for the globally connected user.

With the success of Venmo and others, many predict that messaging platforms and payments will come together to support casual P2P payments among friends. And perhaps into use cases beyond P2P.

Do tomorrow’s P2P payment apps need a messaging capability to succeed? Or do messaging apps need a P2P  payment capability to complete for users?

Topics include:

  • Overview of messaging platforms – key attributes, monetization strategies
  • Key players – Venmo, Facebook Messenger, LINE Pay, SnapChat, etc.
  • Industry trends and likely evolution

As a result of attending this webinar, you will have a better appreciation for this new channel for companies to payments-enable their consumers.
