The UK is one of the most powerful economies in the world. While the fallout from Brexit is still unclear, it has already had an impact on ecommerce; UK consumers are world leaders when it comes to mobile shopping. Additionally, debit cards are quite popular, with the average consumer holding between 2-3 cards per person. Cards account for nearly 90% of all online payments, while online banking is virtually non-existent.
With regards to industries, financial service verticals remains significant for the region, with London, England currently the second-largest financial center in the world. As one of the most globalized economies in the world, the UK has a strong need for global payment solutions.
