The X World Wallet has the capability to easily load to the users existing bank accounts and can be linked to digital or physical Visa cards that can be easily added to the Google, Apple, and Samsung Pay wallets for tap-and-go convenience.

The COVID-19 outbreak played a vital role in driving the growth of the contactless payment market during the forecast period. Contactless payments are in demand among restaurants due to their greater convenience, ordering accuracy, and lack of human contact.
