Number of payment card transactions in Finland 2014-2019, by card type

Debit card payments were by far the most common payment method in Finland throughout the time period 2014 to 2019. The number of debit card transactions reached around 1.7 billion in 2018, and amounted to a value of around 42 billion euros. The number of credit card transactions that same year reached 137 million, with a total transaction value of about 6.9 billion euros.

 Mobile payment methods

Another payment method that is becoming more and more popular is mobile payment apps. The most common payment app in Finland in 2019 was the Danish MobilePay, which was used by 20 percent of Finns in September 2019. The app had more than 42 thousand daily active users in the country in January 2020.

 Cash payments 

While card payments and mobile payment apps have been on the rise in Finland, cash payments experienced the opposite trend. The share of cash in total payment transactions overall declined since 2002, and decreased to around 19 percent in 2018.
