The paper was published on May 2 during a webinar for the media. It has received broad media attention in publications, such as Payment Eye, Finextra, Bobsguide Payment News, Bank Systems and Technology, and was downloaded more than 280 times from our website during the first week.
The paper and the webinar can be downloaded from the Mobey Forum website. Please feel free to share the paper with anyone interested in the topic and spread the word in social media.
Congratulation to all the workgroup members on outstanding work and a special thank you to the chair of the group, Matt Calman from Bank of America! The MPOS Workgroup will resume work and start on the second paper in the series, Business Models for MPOS, later on this month.
Mobile Wallet Webinar for Mobey Members
Mobey is about to launch the fourth paper in the series of whitepapers on the mobile wallet. The paper, Mobile Wallet: Structure and Approaches, looks into the structure of the wallet, the different types of wallets and the various levels of co-operation. The paper has been sent for member review in March and members’ comments have been considered in the final version. The current version of the paper can be found in the members’ area of the Mobey website.
The group’s chair, Jordi Guaus from CaixaBank, will present the paper’s key findings to Mobey members during a special sneak preview webinar on Wednesday 15 May at 3pm CET, ahead of the paper’s official launch on 21 May.

New Image for Mobey
After a consultation from our members, Mobey’s new logo was decided on at the San Francisco Meeting. Thank you for all who voted –the discussion was vivid and we hope we are all pleased with the new logo going forward! The new logo has the same colors as the old logo to ensure continuity and brand recognition, but a new, modern front that gives it a fresh feel. The new logo will officially be launched at MobeyDay on June 11.
