The research revealed that emerging markets will be the driving force behind increased digital commerce. Along with that, QR code payments will be considered as the most used digital commerce mechanism throughout the next 5 years. They will be accounting for 27% of all digital commerce transactions in 2024. Besides, QR payments outside China will increase in popularity, accounting for just over a quarter of global QR payments in four years.
