Mobile payments are now as widely accepted as online payments among the nation's top 10 retailers, according to a survey (free registration required) released in February 2012 by First Annapolis Consulting.
All of the nation's 10 biggest retailers accept both online and mobile payments, the survey said. The large majority of these top retailers also accept gift card payments online (nine of 10 retailers) and via mobile (seven of 10 retailers).
However, there are still things that most retailers won't allow via mobile. For example, seven of the 10 retailers allow you to make purchases online using alternative payment methods, such as PayPal or Google Checkout, while only one allows that to happen via mobile.More credit card infographics
