How Mobile Wallets Help Merchants Engage Shoppers

At the 2017 Mobile Payments Conference, Jack Connors, Head of Commerce Partnerships at Google – who leads Google’s merchant partnerships for Android Pay, showed his in-depth understanding of how merchants can use mobile payments as a way to address a broader set of business objectives.
