In the last month, 3 people told me they were reluctant to make a payment online. They were concerned about putting that “kind” of information online. They were afraid it might not be secure. But these same people wouldn’t think twice about handing their credit card over to a waiter at a restaurant. A waiter who walks away with it and could easily use it to buy a TV on Amazon while you’re finishing desert.
Funny how we trust people but not machines. The shame of it is, those machines could save us all a lot of time and cut down on our stress!
Paypal surveyed 15,000 people in 15 countries and asked them how they felt about living in a cashless society. 78% agreed that paying online was ever so easy, but 40% said they wouldn’t do it with a mobile device.
