  • Ian, thank you for your comment. I am not sure yet how HCE-initiated payments would be treated, but I definitely see a growing recognition in the industry, including the networks, for the need to have a new category of transactions, such as "mobile present." It remains to be seen when it happens and whether it would include HCE transactions.
