“…96 percent of all survey respondents reported making online purchases at least a few times per year, with 57 percent making an online purchase at least a few times per month. Additionally, over one-fourth of credit union members report using a mobile app for order-ahead food purchases at least a few times a month, and two-thirds use a streaming service like Netflix or Hulu.” – PYMNTS
