Visa’s Mobile Wallet To Compete With PayPal


Yesterday, Visa unveiled its mobile wallet that will compete with PayPal in “card number-shielded” online/mobile payments. 

Key features:

  • Use on PC, tablet, or mobile device
  • Use multiple cards
  • Need only username and password to checkout online hopes to differentiate itself from PayPal by also supporting payments at the physical point-of-sale. However, PayPal is working on that as well. 


The service is currently invite-only in the U.S. and Canada, but Visa hopes to make it publicly available in early 2012.
