In 2014, Apple was the only major mobile wallet on the market. But in 2015, Google and Samsung launched their own mobile wallets. Since that time it is possible to turn your mobile device into a credit card, which is a simple, quick and secure way to pay.

Business Insider’s research service, expects in-store mobile payment volume to grow from $75 billion in 2015 to $503 billion in 2020, knowing that Apple Pay transactions are up 500% year on year, and the number of transactions in only september was the same number as the full fiscal year of 2015. Today, 15% of the consumers are using mobile payments in the US, 18% in the UK and 27% in Australia. But except for these 3 countries, where else can we use NFC (Near Field Communication) mobile payments? Here’s the list.

Why mobile payment is worth considering 

Fear over security, is the key reason consumers hesitate to adopt mobile payments. But your mobile wallet is arguably the safest way to pay.

“For every transaction, [mobile wallets] create a random, one-time number — a transaction token — and even if someone was able to know that number, it’s not valid later.” says Jason Chaikin, president of biometrics security company Vkansee.

Plus, this kind of payment can earn you time and rewards like travel points or cash back.
