Fiserv Consumer Trends Survey – Impressive Growth for Online Biller Direct Payments

Fiserv’s annual Consumer Trends survey is one of my favorite reads every year. It continues to be an excellent review of year-to-year trends regarding consumer payment habits. No doubt the story of the last decade has been the declining use of traditional payment methods such as paper checks (in lieu of online banking and bill pay adoption).…
