60% of British consumers would avoid making payments using a mobile

Almost two-thirds of consumers would avoid making payments through their mobile using technologies such as NFC, according to research from VoucherCodes.co.uk.

The survey of 2,000 British adults found that 60% would avoid mobile payments altogether while 17% would be interested but would be worried about the technology working correctly.

Security concerns (36%) were the most common reason for avoiding mobile payments.

Mobile payment brands also appear to be making little headway in raising consumer awareness.
