Payment methods

Technology is changing the way businesses pay each other, as well as how consumers pay businesses. The number of near-field-communication (NCF) and mobile point-of-sale (m-POS) users are increasing, leading to safer transactions at the point of sale. Financial technology, or Fintech firms are also transforming payments, particularly mobile payment technology.

The future of cash

While the number of non-cash transactions is increasing, the demand for cash is still relevant. Many Europeans still carry and amount of cash in their wallet, and many businesses still require cash payment. Electronic options are increasingly common, but cash will remain a significant factor for the foreseeable future.
