PayPal is gearing up to play a part in a new US identity initiative which seeks to replace multiple password and user name log-ins with an interoperable set of commercially-supplied digital identities for consumers transacting online. The Obama administration's National Strategy on Trusted Identities in Cyberspace (NSTIC) released preliminary proposals for the creation of a federated 'ID ecosystem' late Friday, following a year of intense consultation and collaboration with public and private sector stakeholders. The NSTIC strategy aims to improve upon the passwords currently used to log-in online by encouraging the creation of a digital ID marketplace where users can shop among multiple identity providers.
American Express has just announced “Serve,” which the company touts as “a digital payment and commerce platform that gives consumers a new way to spend, send and receive money with services that go beyond the existing global payment networks.” You set up an account online at serve.com and dump money into it from an existing bank account, credit card or from other Serve users. I took the plunge and signed up for an account—here are my initial thoughts. It’s very much like PayPal. Serve has the backing of a major financial institution in American Express, which may help some people feel more at ease whereas PayPal has always taken a “we are not a bank” stance.
PayPal’s enviable position as the go-to digital payment platform may soon be on shaky ground. According to an official announcement released this morning, credit card giant American Express has its own payment system in the works, which will take direct aim at PayPal and other emerging payment platforms. The service, dubbed Serve, will share many of PayPal’s features , including fund transfers, ATM withdrawals, and person-to-person payments. Serve users can connect their account to be funded by multiple accounts, including debit or credit cards, bank accounts or from another Serve account.
Home » 10 most bizarre cheques ever written Credit: Dave Cheques are on the way out, with the Payments Council recommending that they no longer be accepted after 2018. While small business owners may be concerned, major supermarkets have already stopped accepting cheques, as debit cards and online shopping have become increasingly popular.
The UK's Treasury select committee is reopening its probe into plans to abolish cheques by 2018, claiming it has been "inundated with letters" from the public opposed to the move. After several years of declining popularity, in December 2009 members of the Payments Council voted to set a provisional target of 2018 for the abolition of cheques, with a review scheduled for 2016. However, the decision provoked widespread concern, with consumer groups, small businesses and charitable organisations all speaking out, prompting the Treasury Committee to launch an inquiry last February. The Committee declared itself "unconvinced" by the Payment Council's assertion that cheques are in "terminal decline" and associated claims about the cost benefits of ditching the 350 year old payment method.
Giant retail electronic payments network operator Visa is giving PayPal a run for its money today, announcing a new service that will allows U.S. consumers to receive and send funds to any eligible Visa credit, debit or prepaid account. Now, bank customers of participating financial institutions will have the option to select a Visa account as the destination for funds when making a personal payment. Users enter the recipient’s 16-digit Visa account, email address or mobile phone number, allowing consumers to send funds directly from their bank account to a recipient’s Visa account, similar to the act of sending money on PayPal. Visa is actually working with outside company CashEdge and Fiserv to offer this service. Previously, Visa’s personal payments was offered by financial institutions outside the U.S. but the availability in in the U.S. is a big deal, considering the popularity of PayPal.

Google Checkout is an interesting point in the map of Mobile Money. As with most Google products, it seems to be the answer to everything, and with the Mountain View based company behind it, why isn’t it everywhere and dwarfing other options just as Google does in search? Google Checkout was set up to take small payments for web services and other items, a central system for users and a single point of contact for developers and user. And then Google Checkout was thrown into the front line of mobile payment... the Android smartphone application store. From a technical point of view Google needed a way for people to pay for applications on their ‘free’ mobile OS, and they had their own payment system in place.
