Credit Card Usage Is Up

Credit Card Usage is Up

When times get tough, customers rely on credit.

Each month, TimePayment accesses POS industry research to help guide you on making the most of today’s opportunities. Today we explore increasing credit card usage in the face of economic turbulence.

By the numbers: We surveyed more than 2,300 retailers and found:

  • 29% reported increased credit card purchases in the previous 60 days.
  • 35% reported increased applications for store credit cards.
  • Purchases over $400 were funded by credit card 61% more frequently than the same time last year.
  • Restaurants reported a credit card usage increase of 19% in the previous 60 days.
  • The fastest-growing merchant sector for credit card usage in the previous 60 days was medical.
