Electronic payment is taking off in Vietnam as people solve the problem of spotty bank coverage with payment apps and other online services.
Fewer than half the population have bank accounts, with the ratio especially low in rural areas. And as mobile devices spread, e-payment is set to become even more popular.
E-payments in Vietnam grew 22% in 2017 to USD6 bn, and are projected to double by 2022.
