More than 80 percent of Americans have a strong interest in using connected devices to make purchases, with a keen eye toward security and data concerns, according to a new study released by Visa and Pymnts.com. The study found that 75 percent of consumers have at least one connected device, in addition to their smartphones, computers or tablets. Some 83 percent recognise those devices as saving time and reducing friction when making purchases. This purchase experience is of interest to all respondents, with auto-pay at the pump and in-store topping the list at 40 percent.
