Evolution of digital payments in 2024
Digital payments have undergone remarkable transformations since the pivotal year of 2020. As we stand on the precipice of 2024, it’s crucial for businesses to anticipate and adapt to the unfolding trends in payment dynamics.
For businesses, irrespective of their size, even a marginal improvement in payment acceptance rates can wield a profound impact on financial stability. From a B2C perspective, 36% of consumers said in a recent survey that digital payment acceptance is a top factor in their purchasing choices. Fortunately, there are some simple steps you can take to improve your payment acceptance rates in 2024, including:
• Offering more flexible payment options.
• Strengthening fraud protection measures to safeguard your business and build trust with consumers.
• Simplifying the payment process.
In the year 2024, providing flexible payment options like EFT debit orders will take on a new dimension, addressing cost concerns but also becoming a pivotal tool in managing your payments effectively.
Beyond cost-cutting, there is a growing recognition of the potential to create a harmonious workflow. A recent study by Deloitte revealed that 53% of CFOs plan to accelerate digital transformation initiatives. Leveraging APIs and contract management systems is a transformative way to streamline payment processes, ensuring timely payments and enriching the overall consumer experience.
As we navigate the evolving landscape of EFT payments, businesses that strategically embrace flexibility, leverage technology, and prioritize consumer experience are poised not only to survive but to thrive in the dynamic market of 2024 and beyond.
