Mobile Payments Becoming More Popular In Canada

Women and those aged over 35 saw the biggest spike in uptake

Canadians are warming to the concept of mobile payments, according to research by Catalyst Canada. In 2015, a quarter of respondents said that they intended to make more mobile payments that year compared to the previous year. This year, that proportion has risen to a third, with women and people aged over 35 being the two groups seeing the biggest increase in likelihood to use mobile payments. PayPal is the country's most popular mobile payment app, being used by 70% of mobile payment users in Canada. Google Wallet and Apple Pay are used by around a quarter of mobile payment users, however, there are differences in demographic distributions. While Apple Pay doesn't see any major gender or age differences, Google Wallet is far more popular with males and those aged under 35.
