TORONTO, Oct. 18, 2016 /CNW/ - Sixty-three percent of consumers in Canada use cash at least weekly to make purchases at a merchant location, down five percentage points from 2015 – the most significant decline in use of traditional payment methods over the past year, according to a new report from Accenture (ACN). Awareness of mobile phone payments increased nine percentage points from last year to 49 percent, slightly lower than the overall North American response of 56 percent, while the regular use of mobile payments in Canada remains flat at 11 percent, compared with 19 percent overall for North America. The 2016 North America Consumer Digital Payments Survey is based on responses from more than 4,000 smartphone users in the United States and Canada, and is the most recent report in Accenture's multi-year research on consumer attitudes about how they want to pay now and in the future.
