The Paypers has released The Payment Methods Report 2018, a comprehensive resource depicting the key trends and developments in payments methods.

This year’s edition has a strong focus on the way people pay in different geographies and verticals. The report’s educational purpose allows us to place special emphasis on customer preferences per region/industry, but also to highlight best practices from both merchants and PSPs in illustrating the right payment mix. In order to provide an accurate overview of the current state of the innovation in the way people pay, we have looked at trends across geographies but also across verticals, from both, an online and offline perspective, bearing in mind as well that the evolution of cash payments is just as important as the growth of e-payments.

How people pay in different geographies and verticals

We found it necessary to investigate some of the most important markets worldwide and to provide an overview and data related to the way people pay. For each selected country, we presented details related to some ecommerce data, the preferred payments methods and some of the best-known alternative payments methods. In addition, we also took a deep dive into the ecosystem of e-wallets, the dedicated section incorporating research in an exclusive infographic of e-wallets mapping the 61 most prominent e-wallets today on several functionalities.
