The report used a number of metrics including the amount of credit and debit cards per person, cards issued with contactless capabilities, the growth of cashless payments, payment transactions made without using cash and the awareness of mobile pay options to calculate the ratings out of 10.

Canada came top largely due to its number of credit cards, with as many as two per person, despite only 26% of cards having contactless capabilities.
