An executive of the company says that consumers no longer want to use cash and want to abandon their wallets in favor of their smartphones. 70 stores in New Jersey are now providing the mobile payment service enhancing consumer satisfaction with the convenient transactions.

According to researches mobile payments are expected to grow to 34 billion US dollars in 2019 from 6.8 billion last year.
