Mobile Money E-money product where the record of funds is stored on the mobile phone or a central computer system, and which can be drawn down through specific payment instructions to be issued from the bearers‘ mobile phone.
Also known as M-Money.
Multi-Factor Authentication mechanisms typically use a combination of three factors to Authentication ensure that the person participating in a transaction is the person who he claims to be. These factors are: i) something a person has, such as a payment card; ii) something a person knows, for example a password, PIN number, token, etc.; and, iii) something a person is, typically a biometric information like fingerprint, but could also be non-biometric like keystroke patterns. Authentication systems that use more than one of these factors are called multi-factor authentication systems. Those that use two— something a person has and something a person knows—are specifically referred to as two-factor authentication mechanisms. It needs to be noted that in some contexts, inclusion of out-of-band authentication could also constitute multi-factor authentication.
Multilateral An arrangement among three or more parties to net their obligations. The Netting obligations covered by the arrangement may arise from financial contracts, transfers or both. Multilateral netting of payment obligations normally takes place in the context of a multilateral net settlement system. See also Bilateral Netting.
Netting An agreed offsetting of positions or obligations by trading partners or participants. Netting reduces a large number of individual positions or obligations to a smaller number of obligations or positions. Netting may take several forms that have varying degrees of legal enforceability in the event of default of one of the parties.
Network Money E-money that is transferred via telecommunications networks such as Internet.
Offline Authorization processed by exchanging financial messages between a Authorization card reader and chip card without exchange of online financial messages with the issuer of the card. See also Authorization.
Online Payment transaction using a standard banking account, with the Banking- transaction being authorized by the payer's bank at the time of transaction, enabled typically through introducing a standard Internet banking authentication as part of the payment transaction. In general, in this step the payer‘s Payment (OBeP) institution also provides an authorization and a commitment to honor a subsequent direct debit for this or alternatively committing to process a credit transfer. The payment transaction is then processed as a direct debit from the payer's account or a credit transfer by the payer's bank.
Out-of-band Authentication mechanisms where a different channel than the one used Authentication for the transaction is used to conduct authentication or in some cases to conduct an additional authentication. For example, in an Internet banking transaction, sending a one-time password to a person's mobile phone and requiring that password to be entered for completion of the transaction; or, in the course of a mobile phone-initiated transaction, triggering an automated call to the persons registered landline phone and seeking confirmation of the transaction.
Paper-based Payment instruments that require physical exchange between payer and Instruments payee and also require manual clearing.
Payment Card Payment product where the payer is provided with a physical card with required account information encoded in a magnetic stripe and/or on an embedded IC chip. The information on the magnetic stripe or IC chip being read/accessed by an appropriate device of the payee triggers an authorization request to ensure availability of funds in the payers account.

Where this is so, the arrangement may be referred to as ―electronic funds transfer at the point of sale‖ (EFTPOS). In the latter case, the terminal reads the account information from a payment card's magnetic stripe and/or embedded IC chip and in some cases also accept cardholders PIN entry; prepares a transaction authorization request based on transaction; transmits the authorization request to the acquiring institution; receives the authorization response; displays transaction completion status; and prints a transaction record.
