This ensures that as AMCN expands they work to accept the most relevant and popular forms of payment in each territory to maximize its potential customer base.
- PayPal appears in the top 2 forms of payment in over 60% of the countries we analyzed, most notably in Europe and Latin America.
- ApplePay, Amazon Pay, and Google Pay all regularly outrank American Express for consumers having used them in the previous month.
- Digital wallets are on the ride across all territories as smartphone penetration increases; quick and easy smartphone purchases will be increasingly important to consumers.
