MPOS landscape in the past month. According to Paull, there is a spike
in both consumer and merchant demand in the market and many new players
are jumping in to meet this demand. “Part of this trend is the fact that
this technology is making it easier for new players to adapt their
programs and go after their customers. We also see a trend where MPOS is
