According to this report, the global online payments industry continues to grow, initially driven by increased adoption of digital payments throughout the pandemic. Common payment methods remain predominantly card-based, with debit and credit cards ranking among the most preferred payment methods when shopping online.

Another payment method that is currently gaining momentum in the world is the digital wallet, as more and more consumers are using it to pay for their online purchases. Due to the growing use of digital wallets, online merchants are also adjusting the payment methods they offer, with almost half of all e-commerce businesses already accepting digital wallets as payment methods and around a third plan to expand the adoption of their digital wallet in the future.

consumers in the Middle East and Africa continue to embrace digital payments, overcoming key barriers

The digital payment industry in the MEA region was already growing before the onset of the pandemic and its growth has been accelerated by the health crisis. Looking at the different regions of Africa during the pandemic, East Africa displayed the highest and North Africa the lowest mobile money transaction volume in 2021, implying a large gap in digital payment adoption across different regions of Africaas detailed in the report.

Whereas, compared to the traditional banking sector, the mobile money sector Africa has significantly improved accessibility and usability for its consumers, although lack of knowledge and relevance remains the biggest barrier to owning a mobile money account in this region. In the Middle Eastcards and digital wallets are increasingly used by online shoppers.

The banking sector adapts to changing consumer preferences

As consumers increasingly opt for online payment methods, the bank is also moving towards the digital payment trend. More than a third of banking executives surveyed in the MEA region said their top priority for the coming years was to master digital marketing to improve their digital presence with consumers. About two-thirds expect digital wallets to be among consumers’ preferred payment methods in their respected markets within a few years.
