In the context of current crises following COVID-19 and growing global economic uncertainties, the issues regarding financial transactions with FINTECH are increasingly apparent. Consequently, in our opinion, the utilization of FINTECH financial transactions leads to a risk-reduction approach when in contact with other people. Moreover, financial transactions with FINTECH can save up customers’ pecuniary funds. Therefore, during crises, FINTECH applications can be perceived as more competitive than the traditional banking system. All the above have provoked us to conduct research related to the utilization of financial transactions with FINTECH before and after the COVID-19 crisis outbreak. The aim of the article is to present a survey analysis of FINTECH utilization of individual customers before and after the crisis in Bulgaria. The methodology includes a questionnaire survey of 242 individual respondents. For the data processing, we implemented statistical measures and quantitative methods, including two-sample paired t
-tests, Levene’s test, and ANOVAs performed through the computer language Python in a web-based interactive computing environment for creating documents, Jupyter Notebook. The findings bring out the main issues related to the implementation of financial transactions with FINTECH under the conditions of the crisis. The findings include the identification of problems related to FINTECH transactions during the COVID-19 crisis in Bulgaria.
