Digital payments is an important theme for ecommerce companies, with all of the top five companies in the thematic screen of GlobalData’s ecommerce sector scorecard scoring at least 4 out of 5 in this theme. Additionally, the top three ranked companies (Visa, Mastercard, and Klarna) all provide consumer payment services, highlighting the importance of this aspect of ecommerce.
