Great report from Accenture highlighting how the payments industry will change. Some of the findings include:

  • Consumers expect to use traditional payment instruments slightly less and emerging payment instruments more.
  • Digital currency is a practical reality for consumers today—and usage will only increase by the end of the decade.
  • Consumers’ use of mobile payments has increased significantly in just two years.
  • Consumers prefer today to use network card providers as mobile payments providers.
  • Consumers who use mobile payments can be influenced to use them more—but challenges remain for adoption among non-users.
