The ratio of adult Hungarian internet users who choose to pay without cash if they can increased from about 33 percent to 44 percent, according to a survey conducted by eNet and OTP Mobil in July. Those who prefer paying with cash represent 28 percent of the respondents and the share of those who are open to both payment methods is 29 percent.
