Digital Payments in Germany: What Consumers Want and Why

  • The Impact of Inflation on Digital Payments in Germany: German online shoppers show a considerable interest in flexibility, with 67% using different payment methods depending on the products they’re buying online. The reason behind this is the ongoing cost of living crisis and its impact on consumers’ household budgets that are pushing consumers towards greater use of flexible payments. High expenses of everyday life will further drive the popularity of buy-now-pay-later options in the online payment industry in Germany.
  • Online Payment Methods Germany & Convenience: Convenience (especially in cross-channel shopping), which is particularly valued by younger consumers in Germany, will continue to boost the popularity of mobile wallets, which shoppers become increasingly familiar with. The linking of mobile wallets to cards will be increasingly common among younger consumers to make the use of giro, debit, or credit cards more convenient.
  • Challenges for Online Payment Methods in Germany: Despite all the security regulations around digital payments in Germany, half of German consumers still worry about the security of online payments. This could lead many to be cautious about spending online, or to be cautious about buying from a brand they’re not familiar with. Additional security measures could help ease concerns, with 65% of German online shoppers thinking two-stage authentication makes online purchases more secure.

A Forecast for Online Payment Methods in Germany

  • The familiarity of giro and debit cards will contribute to their evolution into a more modern and digital payment method. The increasing integration of debit card providers into mobile wallets will not only drive growth among younger consumers, but also help gain the trust of older consumers in Germany.
