“This has helped to advance the country’s goal of enabling financial inclusion and also provided rapid payments digitization for citizens. The pandemic has further accelerated adoption of digital payments with many first-time users adopting digital payments and significant uplift by merchants.” With millions of people globally having to change the way they work and live — and the way they shop and pay — mobile wallet adoption rose to a historic high of 46 percent in 2020, up from 40.6 percent in 2019 and 18.9 percent in 2018.

Countries like Brazil, Mexico, and Malaysia where many people historically relied on cash are now some of the fastest adopters of mobile wallets. Globally, more than 70.3 billion real-time payments transactions were processed in 2020, a surge of 41 percent compared to the previous year, as the Covid-19 pandemic dramatically accelerated trends away from cash and cheques towards greater reliance on real-time and digital payments, said the report.
