Abstract

Nowadays it is possible to verify that there is a change in the way of buying, that is, the traditional means of shopping is increasingly giving way to the electronic medium and, consequently, electronic payment means. The Internet, by making it possible to purchase and pay online, through means such as PayPal, Credit Cards, PaySafeCard, among others, has contributed to greater convenience, speed and efficiency, making the daily life of the population easier. This phenomenon gives rise to a new generation of consumers, the online consumers [1]. Therefore, the objective of this research was to understand which means of online payments are most used by consumers. As a way of responding to this objective, a quantitative methodology was used, in which an online questionnaire was created to collect data Some results corroborate with the literature, but others contradict it, especially regarding the age range of online consumers.
