[Report] Consumer payment preferences in 2021
How your customers prefer to pay impacts their buying decisions. Learn all about payer preferences in 2021, and how you can leverage them for your business.
Who this report is for
Businesses that collect recurring payments from consumers in North America, the UK, Europe, or ANZ. Or that plan to collect in these regions, in the case of international expansion.
Why payment preference matters
Which payment methods your customers prefer to use is an important consideration in any business’ payments function.
Ignoring your customers’ payment preferences can introduce friction into their buying journey and make your competitors a more welcoming alternative.
Addressing them, however, can increase conversion, improve customer loyalty, and reduce churn.
