When was the last time you used mobile payments?
We can see why you’d use mobile payments very often as it’s extremely convenient. Older Samsung phones even included MST technology to emulate magnetic card swipes on older card machines that didn’t support NFC. Then again, mobile payment tech might be unfamiliar for some less tech-savvy people. So we can see why you might stick with a traditional bank card.
