    tomorrow. But how exactly will we make payments in the future?

    Of course, that’s a difficult question to answer with
    certainty. Yet, thanks to research commissioned by [*link https://www.emlpayments.com/payment-solutions/products/open-banking/ *]open
    banking specialists EML Payments Limited[*endlink*], we have a better idea than ever.

    750 payment decision makers participated in a survey that
    asked them questions regarding payment methods. [*nolink https://www.emlpayments.com/newsroom/eml-commissioned-research-finds-1-in-4-u-k-merchants-predict-open-banking-payments-will-become-the-most-popular-payment-method-in-the-next-5-years/ *]25%
    of respondents predicted that open banking will be the dominant payment method[*endlink*]
    within the next 5 years.

    So, what exactly is open banking? And what other payment
    methods could become widespread in the future? We’ll explore these questions
    below.

    [*bold*]What is open banking?[*endbold*]

    Open banking allows consumers to access their banking
    account data through third-party financial service providers.

    Open banking offers many benefits to consumers. To name a
    few, reduced fraud risk, consolidated reporting and improved access to
    financial products and services.

    35% of the survey respondents said that open banking
    payments have seen an uptake in the last two years, indicating a growing
    appreciation of the benefits that paying in this way offers.

    Despite this, almost half of respondents said that they
    haven’t yet fully realised the potential of open banking within their
    organisation and the same proportion stated that their customers were
    distrustful of this new payment method at first.

    [*bold*]Which other payment methods could become popular?[*endbold*]

    Open banking isn’t the only payment method that has risen in
    popularity over the last couple of years. Almost two-fifths of respondents
    reported that digital wallets have risen in popularity.

    Sometimes also referred to as an “e-wallet”, digital wallets
    are systems that store users’ payment details and passwords, making it simple
    and easy for people to make purchases both online and in person. In many cases,
    digital wallets are linked to mobile payment systems that allow users to make
    payments using their smartphones.

    Transactions made using “Buy Now, Pay Later” (BNPL) have
    also risen in popularity according to the survey. This form of short-term
    financing allows consumers to break down a single purchase into smaller amounts
    spread across a period of time, usually in months.

    This finding is corroborated by research conducted by
    Citizens Advice, in which they found that roughly [*nolink https://www.citizensadvice.org.uk/about-us/about-us1/media/press-releases/one-in-10-relying-on-buy-now-pay-later-for-christmas-here-are-citizens-advices-six-need-to-knows/https:/www.citizensadvice.org.uk/about-us/about-us1/media/press-releases/one-in-10-relying-on-buy-now-pay-later-for-christmas-here-are-citizens-advices-six-need-to-knows/ *]a
    tenth of Brits relied on BNPL to buy gifts for Christmas 2021[*endlink*].

     

































    So, which payment method will be most dominant in the next 5
    years? It’s hard to say for sure. But we can safely say that the future’s payments
    will be significantly different than they are now, offering consumers more
    options than ever in how they purchase goods and services.
