When we created our immensely popular and wildly informative infographic last year explaining just what a mobile payment is, we were gratified that so many people found it useful.

Now we're being asked about all of the companies that seem to be jumping into the mobile payment game. It's a good question. Almost every day a new player enters the market.

And why is that? Because so much is at stake. The expectation is that a large percentage of the $6.2 trillion in credit card transactions is going to migrate to mobile. (And that doesn't even include other transaction types that could be supplanted by mobile payments.)

So we thought we'd try to shed some light on the companies that are entering the market and how they're placing their bets. And what better way to do that than with another infographic. Our shiny, new infographic shows the game, the stakes, the players and their wagers.

We'll be honest: it's hard to keep all the players and their bets straight. So if you see a company we missed, or think we need to move our chips to another bet, let us know in the comments below.

    Nice work. Thanks!
  • Nancy Baunis
    Great infographic but good luck keeping it current! The players are changing so rapidly. I am also not sure you can make the chips large enough to cover all of them.
  • isabelle berner
    Great idea but sadly quite incomplete, especially when it comes to emerging countries where it all started... Here are some key products/players that are missing from the infographic:

    Mobile Wallets: MobiPay in Namibia, Celpaid in the Ivory Coast, MPeso in Nicaragua...

    Mobile Point of Sale: TagPay, Unisystems, MobiPrint

    Contactless/NFC: NFC2.0 and Zoosh should definitely be included

    Technology Providers: Tagattitude (providing the platform & tech for 30+ mobile money services worldwide)

    I look forward to seeing this infographic evolve.

    You seemed to of missed one of the biggest software providers in both mobile payments/mobile banking - Sybase 365 (An SAP company)
  • Alison Cheek
    This is a great start. Here are a couple more to add for Version 2.

    Technology partners: eServGlobal - mobile money technology provider, recently launched mobile money services in Indonesia with mCoin.

    Mobile Money Transfer: HomeSend - mobile centric international remittance platform covering over 300 million subscribers.
  • Oded Israeli
    You also missed Amdocs, the market leader in Carrier Billing and carrier solutions for Direct Carrier Billing.
  • Lennart Streibel
    you also missed Identive, who is a provider of cashless payment solutions, hardware and NFC/contactless
  • Fregard Mosform
    This makes a good motivation in learning poker online. The big bets sometimes happen in the cyberspace and not on the casino.
