Cardbeat UK

Want to know about UK credit cardholders? Learn about their attitudes and behaviors regarding payments-related issues. Cardbeat (UK) is a syndicated market research product that provides insights into how changing consumer behaviors and trends are impacting the credit card industry in the UK. Conducted tri-annually, each issue of this study of 800 UK credit cardholders focuses on a unique topic, sourced through subscriber input. Similar to its US counterpart, Cardbeat UK also monitors key trends, focusing specifically on credit cards as a product, while also examining other forms of payments and financial products. Our payments experts design surveys in collaboration with subscribers and analyze survey results to create these reports. Subscribers are encouraged to suggest sub-groups for further examination. Payment Insights publishes three other syndicated publications: Cardbeat (US), The Payments Report, and Mobile Pay Tracker. Contact Payment Insights to learn more.
