More consumers start to use Google Pay
According to the latest figures cited by yStats.com, Google Pay users are growing at double-digit rates. In the USA alone, Google Pay is expected to gain more than 1 million new users in 2019. On the global scale, Google Pay is projected to catch up with Samsung Pay in terms of the number of contactless payment users by 2020. However, the two wallets combined are still expected to have fewer users worldwide than Apple Pay.

Google Pay supports a variety of payment channels, including in-store, online and P2P, reports yStats.com. In E-Commerce, the mobile wallet already achieved a one-digit share of payment transactions in Europe and the USA. Furthermore, in Australia, Google Pay is the fourth most used mobile payment solution in-store, having gained several percentage points in consumer usage between 2017 and 2018.
