Number of POS terminals in Italy 2009-2018

Total number of POS terminals in Italy from 2009 to 2018 (in 1,000s)

by Statista Research Department, last edited Oct 14, 2019
Number of POS terminals in Italy 2009-2018 In 2018, in Italy there were approximately 3.2 million Point of Sales (POS) terminals. The number increased steadily in the country since 2010, when there were approximately 1.35 million POS terminals. The increase in the number of POS terminals went hand in the hand with the growth in the number of card payments at such terminals and the overall increasing popularity of cashless solutions.
Cashless solutions increasingly popular

In Italy cashless solutions seem to be becoming more and more widespread. As mentioned before, card payments at POS increased steadily in the last few years, reaching 2.7 billion in 2017. A closer look at the methods of payments shows that the highest growth was to be seen in the number of debit card transactions. This figure increased more than twofold from 2009 to 2017, when the number of debit card payments in Italy reached 1.94 billion.

Italians spend more with cards

The increasing popularity of cashless payments is a trend all over the European Union. In fact, the total number of card payments in the EU reached 69.2 billion in 2017, increasing from 46.2 billion in 2013. Which means an average increase of 10 percent yearly.
