Still top dog in mobile payments: Direct Carrier Billing [Infographic]

With all the excitement in mobile payments focusing on NFC and mobile wallets, you might be forgiven for overlooking the most popular kind of mobile payment globally – direct carrier or operator billing.

In this infographic, Amdocs puts things in perspective, highlighting the dominance of the payment channel such as its 5 x conversion rate when compared to credit card billing, as well as the still huge potential for global growth within app stores and in-app purchases as well as the purchase of goods and services in the real-world at the point of sale.

Update: It’s been pointed out in the comments (Thanks Jason) that despite being re-published quite recently, the infographic below is in fact considerably older – apologies this slipped through the net! It still contains some interesting nuggets, so we’ll leave it here for posterity.
