3 Reasons You Should Use a Mobile Wallet

As a business owner, you know it’s important to offer your customers multiple ways to pay. And you may have noticed that more customers are also paying with mobile wallets. According to a Square consumer survey, the adoption rate for millenials is above 45 percent, and people who use Apple and Google Pay love it. Here are a few reasons you should start using a mobile wallet:

1. Paying with your phone is fast.

Contactless payments are the fastest way to pay. They usually take about a second to process, so you can get through your errands faster.

2. It’s convenient.

You’re probably carrying around less cash, but your phone is always on you, even while you’re on the go running your business. Now there’s no need to dig into your bag or your wallet at the checkout counter — you can just tap your phone to pay. Buying goods online? Using Apple Pay and Google Pay also makes mobile and online purchases easy. Instead of typing out your 16-digit card number on your phone, you can pay with just a click or two.

3. It’s super secure.

Mobile payments have multiple layers of dynamic encryption, making them an extremely secure way to pay. They’re far more secure than magstripe payments, and just as secure as EMV chip card payments. Consumers can also activate fingerprint technology in most mobile payments solutions — another layer of security that protects data on lost or stolen devices. Best of all, your card never has to leave you, which means it’s less likely to get lost.
