MINNEAPOLIS — Oct. 29, 2012 — Digital River, Inc. (NASDAQ: DRIV), the revenue growth experts in global cloud commerce, announced that its Digital River® World Paymentsâ„¢ solution will be featured at the upcoming Social Mobile Payments Conference. The event will take place Nov. 6-8, 2012, at the Miami Marriott Biscayne Bay hotel in Miami, Fla.

On Thursday, Nov. 8, at 1:00 p.m. EST, Souheil Badran, senior vice president and general manager of Digital River World Payments, will discuss current mobile payment trends during his presentation, entitled “The Evolution of Mobile Payments.” This session will:

  • Address consumer mobile usage trends and how consumer behavior will force changes in the payment industry;
  • Review key considerations for launching a mobile commerce channel, including consumer attitudes towards mobile payments; and
  • Feature best practice examples from online brands and payment providers that have successfully launched mobile payment solutions.

“As multiple price points make smart phones increasingly more affordable, an increasing number of consumers are using them to search, discover and shop anywhere, at any time,” said Badran. “It is important that online merchants and payment providers reduce the friction around the consumer’s mobile payment experience — the less complex mobile payments become, the faster consumers will adopt the mobile channel.”
