UK Lenders Set to Lose at least $1.45 billion in Payments Revenue
British banks could lose at least £1.45 billion ($2.68 billion) in payments revenue within the next few years as retailers develop mobile apps for people to shop and bank at the same time. Retailers, financial technology groups and others are planning to offer customers the ability to pay for goods, check their balance and monitor transactions through their own app or online site, in order to shop and use banking services in one place, according to Accenture
