Study: One In Four U.S. Smartphone Owners Use Mobile Pay, WalmartPay Numbers Unknown

Use of mobile pay among U.S. consumers is growing, particularly at retailers like Starbucks and Walmart U.S. who have adopted their own forms of mobile payment, according to research conducted by Dallas-based Parks Associates.

The report indicated that 25% of smartphone owners in the U.S. use mobile platforms at least once a month. While Apple Pay and Android Pay are accepted by nearly 3 million retailers, the majority of mobile pay users are loyal consumers who use retail-specific payment apps. For instance Starbucks' mobile pay platform processes 5 million transactions per month, according to the report. While Walmart has not given specific data usage on its Walmart pay platform, that service is being rolled out nationwide at its stores this summer.
