Payment firms Billeo and Danal have solved one of the problems that stands in the way of mobile commerce. They’ve found a way to automate those awful mobile billing forms that you have to fill out by typing one character at a time.
Mobile shoppers have been frustrated by having to use touchscreens to enter characters, one at a time, into an array of input fields. In 97 out of every 100 attempts, they abandon the process. San Jose, Calif.-based Danal created a federated identity data engine that merchants and enterprises can use to authenticate a user’s identity using direct mobile carrier account data.
