A new report has revealed the extent of the digital revolution underway in Australian banking, with 98.9% of transactions now taking place digitally and cash being used for just 13% of payments (down from 70% in 2007). 

To get a clear picture of the transformation underway in Australian banking, the ABA has partnered with Accenture to produce the Bank on it – customer trends 2023 report.  

The data shows that customers are digitising their wallets, with the value of mobile wallet transactions reaching $93 billion in 2022, up from $746 million in 2018 – a 124-fold increase. Over 15.3 million cards were registered to mobile wallets in 2022, up from just over two million cards in 2018.
