Number of payments per capita in Netherlands 2010-2018, by type of payment service

This statistic shows the number of payments per capita in the Netherlands from 2010 to 2018, by type of payment service. In 2018, approximately 82 transactions in direct debits were made in the Netherlands per capita. The most payments, however, were made with cards issued by resident PSPs. This number reached 275 payments per capita in 2018. Like in other European countries, credit and debit cards are a popular form of digital payment methods for either physical purchases in brick-and-mortar-stores or for online purchases in the Benelux region.

In 2017, Luxembourg had approximately 240 card payments per capita compared to 166 in Belgium and 250 in the Netherlands. Consumers from the Benelux are familiar with the use of credit cards. Domestic uses, however, appear to be few due to the presence of other popular payment services, with credit cards generally being used for specific situations such as online shopping or foreign travels.
