Report Summary:

This report presents the findings of Strategy Analytics’ user research into the motivations to use, preferences, and barriers to adoption, of mobile payments. Early adopters view retail mobile payments as a quicker, more convenient, and “cool” approach to paying over traditional forms. However, security concerns, continued fragmentation, lack of consistent acceptance by retailers, and uneducated retail staff, are hindering advancements and its increased adoption. Consumers are more likely to trust, setup, and engage in a mobile payment app that comes preinstalled on their phone and can provide information as to which locations accept mobile payments.
