Mobile banking and shopping set to surge
Now what's the results of the ING International Survey on Mobile Banking 2016?
If you don’t already bank, shop or make payments using your mobile device, there’s a good chance that you’ll start within the coming year.
Results show that the share of smartphone or tablet users in Europe who use their device for banking has swelled to 47% – up from 41% in 2015 – with another 16% expected to start within the next 12 months.
“Mobile devices seem to be everywhere, and many people can’t live without their smartphone,” said Ian Bright, senior economist at ING. “People don’t only want to use their mobile phone in their everyday life to manage their money—many also reckon it helps them manage their money better.”
