The way we pay is undergoing an unprecedented shift. We're moving away from paper-based cash and checks, and toward plastic and other digital methods. Global non-cash transactions reached $333 billion in 2012, an increase of 8.8% from the previous year. Electronic payments offer consumers plenty of benefits, including convenience and security, fueling even wider adoption.
In the US, electronic payments account for more than 75% of total non-cash transactions. Meanwhile, traditionally cash-based emerging markets are rapidly adopting new payment methods, fueling growth of companies involved in the e-payment explosion.
