Statista Dossier on cash payments, debit and credit cards, digital and mobile payment methods in the Netherlands

Perhaps the European country most into digital payments outside of Scandinavia and the United Kingdom, the Netherlands boasts high penetration rates for debit cards and contactless payments. This Dossier presents facts and statistics on payment methods in different situations in the Netherlands. This topic is meant to answer questions like "how do Dutch consumers prefer to pay for their offline retail purchases?", "do the Dutch use e-wallets or m-commerce?" and "which payment methods do Dutch e-commerce shops accept the most?"

This dossier looks at whether or not cash money, debit cards, credit cards, smartphone and digital wallets are being used in the Netherlands for the purposes of both offline and online payments. The dossier cannot answer questions, however, on Google Pay, Samsung Pay, Venmo or Swish in the Netherlands, as none of these payment services are available in the country. Apple Pay was released in the summer of 2019 (later than most countries in Europe), therefore no data is available on that. The dossier does talk about iDEAL, a bank transfer system exclusive to the Netherlands which allows online shoppers to use their debit card for online payments.
