COVID has impacted many facets of consumer behaviour globally - notably the way in which people shop. Many stores across the globe have been forced to close and there are concerns about the risk of increased transmissions of the virus during cash payments. As such, the pandemic has proven to be a catalyst for a massive global change in payments and ecommerce.
This change is as true in regions such as the Middle East, North Africa and Pakistan that traditionally favour in-store shopping and Cash on Delivery as it is in regions such as North America and Europe where eCommerce was already a heavily adopted way of shopping. Across the board, it’s safe to say that right now is the inflection point for payments: we’re in a new world where payments can give merchants the competitive advantage.
With Accenture expecting that as a result nearly 420 billion global transactions worth $7 trillion will shift from cash to cards and digital payments by 2023, and increase to $48 trillion by 2030, it’s time to dig deeper into what many are calling the ‘payments revolution’. In ep.1 of Embracing Changing Trends in Connected Payments: Thriving in the Post-Pandemic Ecosystem, Checkout brings together connected payment experts to explore the trends driving this global revolution, and to share how merchants can set out to unlock the power of connected payments.
