Supplementary notes

The source question was as follows "Within the past 3 months, have you used your mobile phone to pay for goods or services at a retail location by tapping or waving your phone over the checkout terminal?" with "Total" figures being 55 percent (n = 110) "Yes" and 45 percent (n = 90) "No". However, the source later mentions that there are respondents who used mobile wallets for internet purchases. These figures - "Used Mobile to Purchase Through Internet", "Yes" (n= 160), "No" (n = 40) - are as follows:

  • "Yes" - with a "yes" to the original question: 64 percent (n = 102)
  • "Yes" - with a "no" to the original question: 36 percent (n = 58)
  • "No" - with a "yes" to the original question: 20 percent (n = 8)
  • "No" - with a "no" to the original question: 80 percent (n = 32)


As the original survey question refers specifically to in-store payments, the "Total" values have been replaced with this new information. The "Yes" as originally insinuated by the source hints at an n of 110, of which n = 102 are online use and n = 8 offline use.
