Today’s customers expect more convenience than ever when it comes to making payments. Increasingly, that means the ability to pay on the go from their mobile devices. More customers are making purchases via smartphone apps or through digital wallet providers like Apple Pay or Google Wallet.
Although traditional methods of payment like cash, credit cards, and checks are still prevalent, the financial landscape is changing rapidly. More and more transactions are moving towards smartphones and mobile payments have already overtaken other ways to pay, like gift vouchers and prepaid cards.
“The total mobile payment revenue in 2017 in the US alone is forecast at 27.05 billion U.S. dollars and is expected to surpass 210 billion U.S. dollars in 2019.” - Sage Payments Landscape Report
