LevelUp is asking consumers to scan, not swipe. Mobile payment startup eyes the path of Square, but with a bigger focus on loyalty perks.

The mobile wallet market has reached a fever pitch this year. With tech companies zoned in on turning your mobile devices into methods of payment, consumers are going to find a lot more value in keeping their smart phones close -- and merchants are clamoring to pick the services that give them the best competitive edge.
