“Mobile wallet (ie ‘Pays’) transactions and purchases for both credit and debit cards had positive results,” says the PSCU. “Debit mobile wallet purchases finished week 38 up 70.3% year over year, slightly lower than the four-week average of +71.3%.

“Credit mobile wallet purchases were up 50.4% year over year, higher than the four-week average of +43.1%.”

The credit union service organisation’s report compares transaction figures from week 38 with those from the equivalent week in 2019 and is based on figures for six mobile wallets supported by PSCU’s credit union members: Apple Pay, Fitbit Pay, Garmin Pay, Google Pay, LG Pay and Samsung Pay.
