The growth of the mobile money market in the MEA is further driven by increased investments in payment technologies made by governments of countries, such as Qatar, South Africa, and the UAE. This region has a presence of creditable Mobile Network Operators (MNOs), banks, and payment processing agents, which encourage the use of mobile money services. For instance, in February 2019, MTN and Ericsson signed a 5-year contract extension for the distribution of new products and the provision of mobile money services in 13 countries across the MEA region. Ericsson aims to deploy the Ericsson Wallet Platform in new markets to serve MTN’s customers.

In January 2018, the company brought together different payment platforms run by Google, including Android Pay and Google Wallet, merging it into a single platform, Google Pay. Google Pay protects an individual’s money with a world class security system that helps the user detect fraud and prevents hacking. It further helps safeguard the individual’s account with screen locking technologies, such as a fingerprint. Currently, in India, Google Pay works with all banks that support BHIM Unified Payments Interface (UPI), India’s real-time payments ecosystem. Google Pay helps small business owners or managers at a corporation to accept payments and connect with customers. Customers on more than 80 BHIM UPI apps can use Quick Response (QR) codes or their phone numbers, to send money from their bank account to other bank accounts without the need of a Point of Sales (POS) system. Since the launch of Google Pay in India (formerly known as Tez), transactions on UPI have increased 43 times, reaching 734 million transactions in May 2019. The company has a presence in North America, Europe, APAC, and Middle East and Africa (MEA).
