Feeding the argument that mobile payments  are still a solution in search of a problem, a new comScore study  reports that consumers don't know about (or use) the vast majority of mobile wallet options aside from PayPal  and Google  Wallet .
PayPal, which has the brand benefit of having been around since the late '90s, is by far the most recognized name on comScore's list, with 72% of respondents reporting they were aware of its digital wallet offering and 48% reporting they had used it. Others on the list included MasterCard's PayPass Wallet , V.me by Visa , Lemon Wallet , LevelUp , and ISIS .
Not even Square , whose high-profile partnership  with Starbucks  officially rolled out last November  seemed to register with survey participants--8% said they knew what Square was, and just 2% reported they had actually used it.
All of this isn't to say it's all bad news ahead for mobile payments players: Though the industry is still nascent, comScore's results indicated digital wallet penetration could eventually reach 1 in 2 consumers as they become more educated on wallet providers' various offerings and benefits.
