  7. 7. Are unbanked population getting benefited from Wallet Wars? • Do unbanked population have easy access to financial services? – • Does a unbanked person can cash-in or cash-out its wallet from any agent location at min. fee? – – • Does that agent needs to be from same wallet scheme provider? How many merchants are allowed to accept payments from other wallet scheme providers? Can he transfer money for his friends and family of other scheme providers at a low cost? – – • How easy is it for a user to cash-in/cash-out from an agent location? Can he pay for the goods and services he availed to any merchant without any fee? – • Can a person easily open a savings/loan account with a wallet scheme provider? Does current wallet scheme providers allow him to send money to un-registered wallet users? What is the cost of money transfer to off-net users? Is this unbanked person getting satisfactory services from existing wallet scheme provider? © Oberthur Technologies 2013 19/11/2013 6
  8. 8. How Interoperability provides Value to MFS Ecosystem? • Product innovation beyond domestic remittances and airtime top-ups In collaboration, banks & MNOs can develop real banking products like micro loans, micro savings, agri-finance, micro-insurance to address the banking needs of customers. • Enabling cost-efficient payments to and from the unbanked population Cash in and cash out is an expensive proposition for everyone. There is a need to create an ecosystem where Mobile Money can be accepted easily at all locations. • Expansion of pool of customers Interoperability enables all wallet service providers to have access to larger market which will eventually lead to a healthy competitive environment. • Low cost of operations Interoperability provides a key benefit of reduction in cost of operation. With interoperability costs can be shared among various wallet service providers for educating and creating awareness of MFS among user and agents. © Oberthur Technologies 2013 19/11/2013 7
  9. 9. Challenges to implement Interoperability • How to route transaction between Mobile wallet service providers – – • Should agreements be signed with a central party or directly between the participants? Will there be a central database of all customer wallets like MNP database? Enabling communication across platform – How to find a common language that all wallet platforms could interpret? • Managing AML/CFT – – – • How to manage KYC/AML/CFT of the customers of other mobile wallet scheme providers? How to control frauds in new use cases of interoperability? Who will be liable for a fraudulent transaction done by a customer? Financial Processes – – – How to define a fee which provides a win-win proposition for both customer and wallet service provider? How to define a common reconciliation and settlement process? How the revenue assurance process will be carried out by finance team of mobile wallet scheme providers? © Oberthur Technologies 2013 19/11/2013 8
