Brent - could you add to the github repo instead? This will allow us to have all information in the same place!

Hi all,

I am adding more information in the same form as before to the wiki (https://www.w3.org/community/webpayments/wiki/WebPaymentsMobileUseCases). Right now it is the GoCardless section. I've read what you have put up. My current plan is to perform a second iteration to address these concerns.

It might be good if we take all the bits that are unfinished and convert them into bugs. Otherwise, we just end up with a big document with lots of TODOs but very little useful content (what we currently have, unfortunately).

Also, the "use cases" that are currently listed are not really use cases... they are more features that each service claims to provide. What would be more useful is to understand (i.e., actually *see* or experience) how these services are made available on a mobile device. The user experience of those features is what is actually important - and how payments are made secure and how users are able to access and understand those options and make purchases using their devices. That's not clear at all at the moment.

What I propose is that we first make a list of what, for each service listed, we want to show/answer. Like, how does the user:

* add real money to the service?
* buy a physical good in the real world (e.g., a cup of coffee)?
* pay for physical service (e.g., gym membership)?
* convert virtual money back into paper money?
* transfer money from one person to another (even if the second person is not signed up for the service)?
* buy a product online?
* resolve disputes?
* view transactions?
* secure the wallet?
* etc.

I'm sure there are a bunch of other good questions. We should probably limit them to about 10 to make this project tangible.
