According to Rapyd’s guide, 36% of South Koreans chose mobile wallet payments as their preferred payment method. Kakao Pay was used by 41% of respondents, followed by Samsung Pay (32%), PAYCO (21%), and Toss (21%). Local cards such as Shinhan, KB, Hyundai, and Samsung Card are the second most preferred payment method in the country, chosen by 30% of respondents.

Rapyd now offers a variety of Korean payment methods identified in the research. The rollout of South Korea payments capabilities will enable international companies to provide localised payment experiences catered to the expectations of Korean consumers.
