Final conference of the Innovative Payments Observatory of the Polytechnic of Milan

2023 has highlighted a greater awareness of consumers and merchants regarding digital payments, which are increasingly part of everyday life, on a par with cash.

The growth of pagamenti digitali continues:
Yesterday the Final Conference of Politecnico di Milano  was held.

Payments in Italy are increasingly contactless, in fact in 2023 8 out of 10 digital transactions are carried out with cards with tap & go technology or with devices equipped with NFC.

A big boost also to the phenomenon of the Buy Now Pay Later BNPL. In terms of technological innovation in the payment acceptance perimeter, many acquirers have opened up to the first SoftPOS solutions, starting to distribute this type of product to their merchants, either as a stand-alone or alongside the physical POS already installed.

We would like to thank for the stimulating discussion table and the accurate analysis of the data, which provided us with a clear picture of technological trends and market trends.
