As if there wasn’t enough going on in the mobile payments space already, what with NFC, dongles, wallets and cloud apps. Now payments company MasterCard and ING Group have teamed up on a payment trial that mixes mobile and Internet payments to support shopping scenarios involving a mix of devices.

The trial is also considering a second scenario whereby shoppers might want a simple click-to-buy option when shopping online on their phone.
