Apple and Samsung might be dominating the headlines in the world of mobile wallets, but there’s plenty of activity happening behind the scenes. Based in Oslo, Norway, MeaWallet offers a number of services including white label mobile wallet services to banks.
In an interview in the Finetics™ Studio by The Bancorp at Money20/20 in Las Vegas, CEO and founder Lars Sandtorv shares his thoughts on the past, present, and future of mobile payments, plus what he’s learned as a founder.
“Banking finance is slow,” says Sandtorv. “You need to have a lot of time and a lot of money to do it and of course it takes time to build trust.
“I started working with mobile wallets, or NFC, back in 2002. A long time ago and since then there have been a lot of different technologies and a lot of things going on in the market. You have to understand a lot in this market, and it’s really complex. There’s the bank side, the payments side, the IT side, the security side, and the mobile network side. You have to have a flexible solution that is secure.”
