If consumers are reticent to make purchases with their phones, they certainly haven't been demonstrating it this week. After the horrible earthquake in Haiti on Tuesday, individuals around the globe have been trying to donate money to relief efforts. The response has been generally impressive, but most surprising has been the outpouring that has been delivered via mobile phones.
Over $4 million have been donated to the Red Cross in the last three days via mobile phones. That's good news for Haitians, and also a big win for those in the mobile payment space.
