Fraud and Security in Online Payments 2016

Shoppers consider security when making online payments: new yStats.com report

Global online payment fraud is increasing at double digit rates, according to a forecast cited in the yStats.com report, and retail E-Commerce transactions is a major component of that fraud. This motivates payment companies to seek innovative means to make online and mobile payments more secure, including biometric authentication.
Surveys cited in the yStats.com report reflect that consumers consider payment security in their decision whether to make online purchases, as well as in the choice of payment method. In the USA, shoppers have indicated that security is more important than speed, and in Spain and Germany, payment security is the top concern of online shoppers in choosing a payment method. Fear of data compromise also appears to be keeping shoppers from adopting new payment methods such as mobile payments. Over 50% of survey respondents worldwide expressed concern about the security of mobile payment apps.
