Global E-Commerce still dubs payment security a concern
Hamburg-based leading secondary market research company yStats.com reports on the latest developments in digital payment landscape in the new publication "Global Online Payment Methods 2019".
By 2023, losses due to online payment fraud to double
Despite the rapid growth in E-Commerce sales, fraud, in several countries, remains a hinderance. Fraud losses from online payments are projected to grow two-fold within the time frame between 2018 and 2023, according to yStats.com's research. Considering this statement, buyers' preferences lie with payment methods that they deem to have the highest level of security.
Online shoppers' payment preferences differ
Mobile payments remotely and in-store are expected to grow in the region, according to figures cited in the yStats.com report. The sentiment in U.S. is that, compared to other payment methods, mobile payments are more efficient and faster. Nevertheless, security remains a concern for North American shoppers who contemplate paying with mobile.
Mobile wallets in focus
Mobile payment services are on the global upswing, with one in three connected consumers already using this functionality. These rates are the highest in Asia-Pacific. A recent statistic cited by yStats.com shows that in China, mobile payments are used by over a half a billion people.
