    9to5 Mac reports that according to a new survey of 1,000 young adult Americans (in the 18-35 demographic) by Dealspotr, more than 10% of those polled had used Apple Pay to buy items in a retail store, and 15% of them had used Apple Pay to buying goods online. This beats the likes of Google Pay, which had 4% of those polled, and Samsung Pay, which had 2%.

    When breaking the numbers down into Millenials (25-34) and Gen-Z (18-24), the results were very close indeed, with the former at 11% and the latter at 10%.

    Dealspotr’s data shows that Apple Pay is still way behind its rivals when it comes to peer-to-peer payments, however, with less than 3% compared with 23% of Gen-Z using Venmo and 17% using PayPal.

    This should change in future though, once peer-to-peer payments are more established in Apple Pay, and supported by more iPhones, as the data provided by Dealspotr showed that 8% of Gen-Z and 12% of Millenials expressed interest in using Apple Pay for peer-to-peer payments.
