Remote mobile payments outpace in-store, reports publication

Infographic: Global Mobile Payment Methods: Full Year 2016 (PresseBox) (Hamburg, ) A new market report was made available by, an E-Commerce and payments secondary market research company from Hamburg, called “Global Mobile Payment Methods: Full Year 2016” that includes citations that forecast remote mobile payments as outpacing in-store mobile device payments. The main force driving mobile payment growth in general is convenience, whereas security concerns still remain prominent.

Information from the report projects mobile payments to see a global increase. Their share of customer card payments is expected to double from 2016 to 2021. The majority of the mobile payment volume comes from remote online purchases, leaving mobile in-store purchases to make up a small one-digit percentage share from the total from areas like Europe and North America.

However, the value of in-store global mobile payment transactions has increased. Contactless payment user penetration amounts now to over one in three people of the banked population from select countries across the globe. Cited within this report, mobile wallets have reached double digit rates of use from E-Commerce consumers in multiple countries such as China, the UK, and Australia.

Several surveys within the report refer to convenience as the top driving factor of increased mobile payment penetration. South Korea provides an example where mobile payments are highly valued due to convenience and quick processing speed. Nevertheless, payment security and personal data protection concerns still persist, deterring customers from making more mobile payments.
