PayPal’s Popular But Apple Is The Class Favorite

PayPal is the number one mobile payment app in the U.S., according to research by Parks Associates and by quite a margin. NFC World reported that 12 percent of those polled prefer PayPal while retail-branded apps are second at 9 percent and Apple Pay is at 4 percent. But it’s a bit of a mystery then why merchants are requesting Apple Pay much more than PayPal for in-store payments. A huge 67 percent are requesting Apple Pay versus 8 percent requesting PayPal.

Chris Tweedt, research analyst at Parks Associates, said: “While PayPal is the clear market share leader, more merchants are requesting information from Apple Pay than any other mobile payment solution.” Tweedt added, “Apple has added a Pay with Apple Pay button into its Safari browser and the company has signed up 21 of the top 100 online merchants, with others to come.”
