Self Service News
Technology changes faster than people can keep up with. From the rise of remote work to the death of cable, it’s hard to keep up.

Digital Purse Uber’s massive growth revealed the potential for apps to enter the consumer service industry and succeed (to say it lightly), but the company’s dominance also points out another interesting element of user behavior: people like paying through an app. It’s simple and clean. Users don’t have to worry about having enough cash or even getting out their wallet. The payment process is handled by the app. All you as a rider have to do is request the car in the first place.
This concept of the digital purse is only gaining steam, and many services have stepped up to bat. Most banks now offer mobile apps to manage your accounts, and Coinbase is even now providing regulated Bitcoin exchange in 26 countries, reviving cryptocurrency. Venmo entered the mobile payment market early and is massively successful on college campuses, but it still has security issues to work through. Recently services like Apple Pay, Samsung Pay, and PayPal One Touch have entered the market. Keep an eye on Samsung Pay’s growth because it is available in 85 percent of all stores, something no other service yet can compete with. Regardless of who comes out on top, the digital purse is booming this year.
