Apple Pay has surpassed Starbucks as the most most popular mobile payment platform in America, according to industry research company eMarketer. Since its last report in 2018, Apple Pay has grown faster than analysts anticipated, now holding over 30.3 million users in the U.S. compared to Starbucks’ 25.2 million users. In third and fourth places are Google Pay and Samsung Pay with 12.1 and 10.8 million users respectively.

According to eMarketer, 47.3 percent of “proximity mobile payment users” use Apple Pay against Starbucks’ 39.4 percent.
