Lost in Transaction: Consumer payment trends 2021
May 05, 2021
Download our latest research report on how COVID-19 has changed the payments landscape, and what that means for the future of commerce.
In April 2020 we commissioned a survey of consumers in seven countries in Europe and North America to measure the immediate impact of COVID-19 on payment preferences.
To discover if the changes we saw during the first wave of the pandemic have endured, whether new payment trends have emerged in the past 12 months, and how consumers view the future as we hopefully head towards the end of the pandemic, we recently commissioned a new survey in the same seven countries.
The findings of this research are published in our latest report Lost in Transaction: Consumer payment trends 2021.
Topics covered in this report include:
How consumers have changed their online payment habits during COVID-19, and whether these changes will be sustained once the pandemic is over
Whether consumers trust the security of online payments more or less than they did 12 months, and how their experiences during the pandemic have influenced that opinion
How cash usage and contactless payments adoption have fluctuated during COVID-19, and whether we’ll see these return to pre-pandemic levels
If we will see a resurgence of in-store shopping, and to what extent life will return to “normal” including consumers’ plans to visit bars, restaurants, theatres, and sports events following the pandemic
The report is available to download now.
The survey was conducted among 8,111 consumers (representative by age and gender) in the U.S. (2,000), UK, Canada, Germany, Austria, Bulgaria, Italy (all 1,000). The interviews were conducted online by Sapio Research in March - April 2021 using an email invitation and an online survey.
