Number of offline and online payment card transactions in Belgium 2010-2018

This statistic shows the total number of processed payment transactions in Belgium from 2010 to 2018 (in millions). According to the Belgian branch of Wordline, the sole processor of payment transactions in the country, approximately 1.77 billion transactions were processed in Belgium in 2018.

Credit cards were no longer the leading payment method for online purchases in Belgium in the fourth quarter of 2017. Its market share had decreased in favor of Bancontact, a payment scheme from Brussels that, like Paypal, is responsible for the processing of electronic payments but specifically targets the Belgian market.
