For Mobile Payments Companies, iOS Is A Much Bigger Revenue Opportunity


Americans who make payments using their iOS devices in stores spend nearly double that spent by Android users making the same type of payments, according to a survey from The Yankee Group.

Mobile proximity payments made with an iOS device averaged $9.91 per transaction.

The average proximity payment made with an Android device was $5.20.

Of course, there are still a lot more Android users than iOS users in the U.S. Fifty-two percent of U.S. smartphone subscriptions are for Android phones versus 42% for iOS, according to comScore.

So, the greater number of Android users does not make up for their lag in mobile proximity spending value.
