Meanwhile, Mastercard (NYSE: MA) and Visa (NYSE: V), are both facing their fair share of obstacles as they try to become players in the digital wallet game.

"They have a connection to an issuer and they have a connection to a merchant bank, but there's nothing they can do to directly influence what consumers or merchants do."
