    • For remote payments in the case for services provided by a conventional web site
    • For proximity and person to person payments for a new breed of installed apps
    • For device and cloud based wallets with support for multiple payment solutions
    • For small payments of the order of a few cents that provide a viable alternative to ads for monetising servcices
    • and so forth...
  • To get a feel for the level of demand for an open standards based API for web payments
  • To demonstrate transparency at an early stage in the standards process
