On­line Shopa­holics

India Today - - UPFRONT -

De­mon­eti­sa­tion meant that a ma­jor­ity of In­di­ans were pushed to come to grips with var­i­ous forms of dig­i­tal fi­nan­cial trans­ac­tions more quickly than they might have oth­er­wise. The good news for the gov­ern­ment is that In­di­ans, at least those polled, trust tech­nol­ogy and will make on­line pay­ments. The com­pre­hen­sive Global Sur­vey on In­ter­net Se­cu­rity and Trust col­lected re­sponses from nearly 25,000 peo­ple in 24 coun­tries, with at least 1,000 re­spon­dents per coun­try, for three months up to March 21 this year. The re­sults showed that peo­ple in de­vel­op­ing coun­tries are far more will­ing to shop on­line; 95 per cent of re­spon­dents in In­done­sia, for in­stance, said they were likely to use mo­bile pay­ments com­pared with just 27 per cent in Ger­many.
