Total number of debit and credit cards in the Netherlands 2005-2019

In 2019, there were nearly 28 million debit cards in the Netherlands. In this same period, Dutch consumers increasingly paid for their purchases by debit card as the volume of debit card payment transactions increased with every passing year. Consumers made more use of debit cards, whilst technical disruptions have declined. The objective of both banks and retailers in the Netherlands was to reach a ratio of 60 percent debit card and 40 percent cash payments by consumers by the end of 2018. Between 2006 and 2018, the total number of credit cards reached a roughly equal number of approximately 6.3 to 6.5 million. Leading reasons in the Netherlands to use credit cards domestically include online purchases, hotel reservations and payments in restaurants.
