Executive Summary

Consumer Payments Country Snapshot: US 2016


In almost all areas of the payments market, the US is highly competitive and features a wide range of card-issuing brands and alternative payment brands. Consumers have a great deal of choice as a result, although this diversity has also led to a fragmented market in which alternative payment tools have struggled to gain market share over traditional options, and the one truly generalist tool available-cash-remains highly popular.

This report examines the consumer payments market in the US, considering payment cards, online payments, P2P payments, and newer payment technologies such as mobile wallets and contactless. This report also examines the regulations in force in the market that players must comply with, and how these have changed in recent years.

American credit card debt has been growing since 2012, albeit not yet to pre-2008 levels. Due to slow growth in wages as well as the Federal Reserve raising interest rates, American consumers are increasingly burdened with debt.

The US is one of the largest and most well-developed online commerce markets in the world, with consumers spending a total of $562bn online in 2015. The market is expected to record robust growth from 2015 to 2020, with mobile commerce expected to account for 20.8% of all online spending in 2020.

American consumers are still highly reliant on cash at the point of sale, due to its universal applicability in the market. Smaller merchants in particular see payment card acceptance as expensive, while other merchants only accept a sub-set of the available card schemes.
