Payment methods in South Korea

Hello everyone,

Once you’re settled in South Korea, you will need to make some basic purchases, like groceries or pay bills. Hence, it is essential to know the payment methods available in your host country.

Which are the most common payment methods in South Korea? Why would you prefer some forms over others?

Does the amount of money or the type of paid services (groceries, bills, rent, etc.) determine the choice of payment methods?

Are there any apps at your disposal which make the payment process easier in South Korea?

Can certain foreign currencies be used to make payments?

Have your habits in terms of payment methods changed since moving to South Korea?

Thanks for sharing your experience,

Priscilla
