Mobile wallets are surging in popularity thanks to a convergence of new technologies and the embrace of these technologies by younger consumers. People are now used to carrying smart phones everywhere, making peer-to-peer payments without the use of checks, and paying for things at stores by waving their phones at special devices.
Because of these things, financial institutions are beginning to rush to get in on this new option. That said, they aren't all running to hire specialized in-house technicians to do this. Instead, they are outsourcing their mobile wallet projects to companies that focus on this part of the financial industry. This allows banks and other institutions to focus on their core competencies, such as investing, while growing their customer bases at the same time.
Since branding is as important to financial companies as it is to any other, both they and their customers find it best for mobile wallets to have the appropriate image. Options like ApplePay, which give all of the branding power to Apple, are not the best for banks and bank-like institutions. Instead, it's better for a mobile wallet to use the institution's branding. This causes them to seek mobile wallet companies that provide full branding options.
