It's commonplace these days to question and to doubt Money and Commerce innovation? With billions of dollars of investments flown into this sector, are consumers really using New Payment Technologies?

In 2013, we saw the following three retailers/merchants (illustrative) embracing mobile payment methods:
Walmart – Scan & Go app for iphone to scan barcodes of goods and pay at checkout terminal
Disney – NFC enabled MyMagic+ smartbands for payment across terminals at rides, hotel, etc.
