Payments Industry to Gain From Expansion of Click to Pay

E-commerce has boomed in the past few months, thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic.

As the coronavirus outbreak has been forcing us to stay indoors and increasingly resort to cashless payments, transactions in the form of cards or e-wallets are becoming a norm. Digital payments have been actively rising in the United States as people are making transactions online.

Precautionary measures set by the government compelled people to avoid physical contact, which aggravates the risk of COVID-19 transmission. People are opting for touch-free transactions across different merchants and platforms, even for daily requirements, such as groceries, pharmacies, gaming, recharges and utility payments, etc.
