Mercator Advisory Group’s research report, The Opportunity of Person to Person Payments, explores the existing products and product providers in the P2P marketplace, describes how they operate, and estimates the current and addressable market size.
“Third-party fintech companies are receiving most of the industry attention right now when it comes to P2P solutions. Financial institutions, however, have customers who trust them with accounts that have already been authenticated, which provides financial institutions a significant product and security advantage.
