Payments Cards & Mobile, the award-winning publisher and American Express, a leading global payments brand, partnered with payments consulting firm Accourt to conduct a survey on the state of Digital Payments.
Advancements in digital technology continued to shape the payments industry in 2015 as mobile, online and other digital forms of payments moved into the mainstream.
From mass transit to gas stations and supermarkets, businesses of all sizes, across all the regions surveyed, now accept various types of digital payment, making paying for goods and services quicker, but above all, easier for the consumer.
While this seems very encouraging, what does the landscape look like beyond 2016?
The Digital Payments Report set out to survey and evaluate all the Payment industry stakeholders from the three major payments markets in the world: Americas, Europe and Asia Pacific. The industry survey respondents were largely senior executives from Card Issuers and Acquirers, Retail Banks, Financial Institutions, Payment Networks, Mobile Network Providers and FinTech suppliers.
