SpendingPulse Snapshot

SpendingPulse provides market intelligence based on national retail sales across all payments types. Our SpendingPulse findings are based on aggregated sales activity in the Mastercard payments network, coupled with survey based estimates for certain other payment forms, such as cash and check.

In addition to the United States, SpendingPulse is available in select markets around the world, including Australia, Brazil, Canada, Hong Kong, Japan, South Africa, and the United Kingdom. Each report tracks metrics by month, year, region and segment – such as Apparel, Grocery, and Online – and includes both expert analysis of current market conditions and forecasts of future spending.

Leverage SpendingPulse to gain access to market intelligence based on key spending patterns to answer key business questions, including:


Is spend in particular areas contracting or expanding over time?


Which days of the month offer the highest projected spend in the industry?


Which regions and segments are seeing the most strength in spend?
