Payments in Poland, 2018 Report
Research report: Payments in Poland

pdf file Payments in Poland, 2018

Poland's payment market has continued to experience explosive growth recently. The total number of payments exceeded 6.5 billion in 2017 and it remains on track to exceed 7.4 billion by 2018. Card payments alone reached nearly 3.9 billion tx level and they accounted for more than 59% of all payments processed in the country. The persisting growth in card transactions can be attributed to fast expansion of the acceptance network and to increasing frequency in card use. In 2017, the average annual number of transactions per single card issued in Poland approached 100 tx. per card and this ratio has more than doubled since the year 2014.

The demand from consumers for convenient payment services and the ongoing support programs dedicated to the development of acceptance network, e.g. "Cashless Poland", contribute to a gradual, although slow cash displacement. It can be assumed that the growth in payment volumes will remain strong, similarly to the dominating role of cards in overall payments. The total volume of payments in Poland is likely to reach 11 billion transactions by 2022.
