80 % of e-banking customers to pay their bills by mobile in 2016
In the next few years, 80% of e-banking customers will be paying their bills through their mobile devices. According to a report from Juniper Research, cited in E-invoicing Platform on 7th August, transactions via mobile are set to grow from 185 million in 2011 to 550 million in 2016.
The rise of smartphones, coupled with the user-friendliness of this type of applications, has made the spread of electronic banking possible, as it is no longer limited to consultation services. Users are increasingly relying on the possibilities of mobile banking, affirms Juniper Research Director, Windsor Holden, so the natural progression is to move from informative electronic banking to a transactional model.
The report also warns of the security concerns of some users, especially the older generation, due to the malware affecting telephones and tablets. This could pose an obstacle to adoption of mobile banking devices, as well as other kinds of e-commerce. To avoid this, the solution is to take proper precautions.
