The surge in contactless

The US is experiencing unprecedented growth in contactless payments, with Mastercard noting an over 100% year-over-year increase in both transaction counts and spending.* This has been driven by a convergence of factors including overall increase in contactless card issuance, adoption of mobile wallets and mass open loop transportation. This is coupled with a demand by consumers and merchants for fast contactless and self-service payments at retail point of sale check out environments.
