Tap, swipe, wave. Technology has made it so wonderfully easy to spend our invisible money. When was the last time you withdrew money from an ATM? Why even bother with cash when you have smartphone-enabled e-wallets at your disposal?
Online transactions (which include mobile payments) have changed the way we pay for goods and services in our daily lives. With the advent of 4G mobile communication coupled with the simultaneous proliferation of smartphones that the online payments business model has come to the fore. With the pending advance of 5G technology, things are expected to evolve even faster.
Physical cash may be falling by the wayside, but the amount of money flowing through a myriad of digital channels continues to increase. Total worldwide digital payments by consumers alone (excluding business-to-business) reached US$4.1 trillion in 2019 and is estimated to hit US$6.7 trillion by 2023, equating to a compound annual growth rate of about 12.8%.
