“Can I pay with a card?” or “Can I pay contactless?” are the questions we hear on a daily basis.

Mobile wallets and even social media platforms being used more and more as a cashless payment mean. When it comes to online shopping, online payment sites are the favored approach. They offer the consumer a more secure way to shop versus other methods like mobile wallets or sites where they need to enter their card details directly.

As virtual assistants like Amazon Alexa and Google Home become more popular in the household, the possibilities for payment methods are almost endless.
