The number of mobile payment users aged 46 to 55 in Taiwan has increased by 31.2 percent in 2019 compared to 2018, according to a report from Taipei-based government-backed IT research institute Market Intelligence & Consulting (MIC). This growth was mainly due to the increasing use of PX Pay among consumers aged 46-55, following the launch a half year ago as it stands on the second spot of their top mobile payment preferences, next to Line Pay, the report shows.
