Mobile Payments Growth Predicted by Survey

Experian, a leading information services and credit organization, has predicted that there will be a major shift in commerce in the coming years. The company has released a new study that suggests that mobile payments will be in wider use than debit and credit cards by 2020. Mobile commerce has been gaining momentum over the past few years,  powered by the aggressive adoption of smartphones and other devices in prominent markets. According to the study, mobile payments are growing particularly quickly in the United Kingdom. The study includes results from a recent survey that Experian held, showing that one in three respondents believe that they will be using mobile payments more than other forms of commerce in the coming years. Nearly half of the respondents noted that they were ready to fully embrace mobile commerce systems that made use of biometric technology. This technology uses biologic information, such as a fingerprint, to protect mobile devices and transactions.
