Does anyone have payments case interview questions (on mobile wallets, contactless transit, digitization)?

Think something Mastercard would ask it's strategy consultants to solve.
Thank you!

Hi A,

payment option is becoming increasingly important in the modern apps, since the customers expects seamless experience and integrated payment.

I can provide you a real life example on how our team was asked to develop the business and technical requirements for the payment integration into a mobility platform (a combination of Uber, Moovel, Google Maps and others). The customer could plan and book a trip using all public and private transport modes available in the city and pay per use.

I liked to use this highly complex qualitative case to challenge my interviewees.

I hope this helps.

Cheers,

André
