The Post-Pandemic Rise of P2P Platforms: Business Casual

Person-to-person or peer-to-peer (P2P) social payment apps such as Venmo, PayPal, Square Cash, Zelle and more have become increasingly popular over the last few years, particularly for younger generations. Rather than pulling cash out of your pocket, these P2P apps are tied to your bank account, credit or debit card, allowing users to virtually pay back friends for coffee, dinner or cocktails, or for amenities like haircuts and pet grooming services…even rent payments—all for free! But in a post-pandemic world, these apps have taken on a life of their own as people are seeking ways to tip service workers, donate to causes, and patronize businesses that moved to digital services during lockdowns. Further, these apps facilitated quicker access to coronavirus stimulus payments, driving more users to the platforms.
