According to a recent survey by PayPal, in five major global markets, “at least 3 of 4 respondents said they wished they didn’t have to carry their wallets around with them.” This survey shows that nearly one in three Americans (29%) would choose a smartphone over a wallet if they could only bring one item when going out.”
So many consumers ‘are ready for the day when the notion of carrying around a bulky wallet to pay for things will seem antiquated’. Are we on the cusp of a transformational moment as to how consumers will make every day financial transactions?
Some businesses are seeing ‘a real opportunity to make people’s lives easier … and the opportunity to make their shopping experiences more seamless, connected, friction-free and intuitive.’ What do you think? Is it time to ditch your wallet? Please share your comment with us.
