Mercator Advisory Group’s most recent report, Debit Cards and P2P Payments: Solid Partners, a 2019 U.S. PaymentsInsights study, reveals that the debit cards and person-to-person (P2P) payments are both core components of the U.S. payment ecosphere today.
This report from Mercator Advisory Group’s Primary Data service is based on a sample of 3,002 U.S. adults surveyed in the annual online Payments survey of Mercator’s North American PaymentsInsights series, conducted in June 2019.
The study highlights consumers’ use of debit cards relative to other payment types, participation in debit card reward programs, and new account opening. Additionally, the survey covers usage of P2P payment services, key P2P brands, reasons for using and not using P2P payments, and P2P fraud.
“Both debit cards and P2P payments are key components in the payments repertoire of U.S. consumers. Each has strengths in serving different constituencies. Debit card has a core group of users who prefer debit over credit cards and use it for all the transactions for which others would use credit. Person-to-person (P2P) payment services are continuing to grow as people and businesses find more use for it,” stated the author of the report, Peter Reville, director of Primary Data Services at Mercator Advisory Group, which includes the North American PaymentsInsights series.
Companies mentioned in the survey results shown include: Apple, Facebook, Google, MoneyGram, PayPal, PeoplePay, PopMoney, Square, Venmo, Western Union, and Zelle.
