Supplementary notes

The source adds the following information: "The study is limited to euro area residents aged 18 years and over and excludes payments made by consumers travelling outside of their place of residence, as well as payments made by tourists, other non-residents and payments between businesses."

* The “other” category includes payment instruments, such as checks, direct debits, credit transfers, mobile payments or other instruments used by households at POS. Due to their low frequency of use, these instruments have been grouped in a single category.
