Germany Cards And Payments Market by Cards and Payment Terminals to 2022

Posted by rohan on December 3rd, 2018

As the German economy recovered after the financial crisis, its banking system was developed to fulfill the payment needs of corporate and individual customers. Banking institutions focused on improving infrastructure and legal support services to increase the payment system’s efficiency and bring it in line with international standards. The growing acceptance of card payments in Germany is expected to reduce the size of the shadow economy while reducing the amount of cash payments which can be hidden to evade tax. The payment system registered a significant shift from credit transfer, direct debit and check-based payments to the use of payment cards and online banking.
