Leading retail voucher code site says shoppers still rate cards or cash as more trustworthy than phones

6 AUGUST 2011 – DiscountVouchers.co.uk, the website that is home to deals for saving money at over 800 top stores, has conducted a survey which shows many UK shoppers still don’t like using their mobile phones for buying goods. The specialist money saving website surveyed UK shoppers across the land this week.

The poll revealed that in excess of 70% of the country’s consumers still don’t like to use a phone as a tool for buying goods. The main reason cited was that people are still uncertain about the level of security around handheld devices – cash and cards remain more trusted.

Doug Scott, managing director of DiscountVouchers.co.uk, comments: “People definitely do not trust their phones as paying devices just yet, that much is clear – however they do need to be a bit more aware that the security levels are a lot safer and more trustworthy than they used to be.”
