re: Ally Launches Mobile Payments Upgrades
That's a cool use case. I definitely would have been happier taking P2P payments back when I was a freelancer. Better than waiting forever for the checks to come in the mail.

re: Ally Launches Mobile Payments Upgrades
My wife's company uses Popmoney to pay freelance employees and they find it's working well so far. P2P services, especially mobile ones, will just become more popular as the world continues going this way. Most younger workers would probably rather be paid via Popmoney or a similar service than be handed a check, as they very rarely go to their bank branches.

I've heard people talk about that small business use case but I haven't actually seen it yet.

Electronic P2P services like Popmoney are also becoming increasingly popular with small businesses, as it's easier and cheaper than cutting checks. I know of several small business that use Popmoney quite a bit to pay contractors.

re: Ally Launches Mobile Payments Upgrades
PopMoney recently added instant delivery funds to its offering. That seems pretty useful to me. You can send someone money from your mobile phone and the funds are instantly made available to their account. That's the kind of simplicity and convenience customers are increasingly coming to expect.
