There has been a gold rush into alternative payments from prospectors seeking to dig up the next
PayPal. But as with past gold rushes, there have been many claims with few successes. Despite
history’s lessons, with every new “gold rush” come new hopes of striking a rich consumer vein. It is all
enough to make one’s head spin trying to parse out the various payment types and business models.

In addition, the alternative payments landscape is morphing, particularly in the eyes of consumers. It
is no longer just the underlying mechanism that is important—equally important is the consumer
perception of the payment. What’s more, mobile payments (a subset of alternative payments), are
quickly becoming a viable platform ready to explode with merchant and consumer adoption forever
changing the payments landscape.

In this second-edition of The Alternative Payment Systems Industry in the U.S. presents an in
depth examination of the U.S. alternative payments business. The report presents the size and growth
of the market and puts it in context to both the business-to-consumer (B2C) ecommerce market and
the total “consumer” payments market including card payments and electronic payments (online bill
payment). Special regard is given to the activity of top players and the varied upstarts, particularly in
mobile payments, hoping to steal share and further alter the old school payments paradigm. Major
key competitors are profiled, along with a focused analysis of consumer payment demographics and
preferences.

Note: Packaged Facts defines alternative payments as entirely electronic and predominantly conducted
over the Internet though not all are conducted through the ACH network. Generally, alternative
payments exclude all forms of paper and any debit or credit card where the purchase or remittance is
made directly with that medium. The most common alternative payments are consumer-to-business
purchases and peer-to-peer, also referred to as person-to-person (P2P) payments.
