Defining interoperability • Ability for consumers to send money to each other irrespective of Mobile Money service • Ability for consumers to cash-in or cash-out at competing mobile money agents • Ability for consumers to use retail payments at all retailers irrespective of who signed the retailer up • Ability for consumers to use existing payment system infrastructure such as ATM, POS, eCommerce and international remittances 8
Considering interoperability • Technical interoperability – how will the messages flow or be defined or standardized? • Consumer awareness – how does the consumer know the retailer/ATM/agent or mobile money service is interoperable? • Where does the consumer go to query or dispute an interoperable transaction? • What are the rules governing such disputes? • What are the mechanisms for compensating mobile money service owners for facilitating your customers transactions? • What are the entry standards or conditions to be a part of an interoperable service? • Can you be sure that you will be settled for the transactions you process on behalf of other service providers? 9
