Month: June 2020
This pandemic has led to more use of cards with our spending.
Resulting from the fear of spreading coronavirus by using notes and coins, have led to businesses and personal consumers to rely on debit and credit cards as well as smartwatches.
The Reserve Bank of Australia’s Assistant Governor said last week there had been a sudden shift to contactless payments during the pandemic.
Automatic Teller Machine withdrawals in April 2020 fell 30% from March 2020.
In April, some banks altered contactless tap-and-go limits to $200 as a measure to reduce the need to enter pin numbers for payments.
59% of people say they will use some cash but not as much once the pandemic ends.
44% of people use a credit/debit card or mobile for payment more than 12 months ago.
59% say some of their local stores are only offering contactless payments.
