    Mobile money: its a bit like cash, but with an audit trail

  • One attribute of mobile payments that is rarely explored is the audit trail – each and every transaction is recorded. Whether you’re paying for a chocolate bar, a mobile app, a phone call, a ride on public transport, settling a bill, donating to charity, paying your taxes, cashing in an m-coupon, transferring money or gaining entry to an event with an m-ticket it’s all recorded.
