GlobalData has found that ATM cash withdrawals are forecasted to decline at a CAGR of 3.6% thus reaching $7.9 billion by 2024.
The report also states that the value of card payments across New Zealand is expected to reach $66 billion by 2024. That’s a 2.2% increase at a compound annual growth rate between 2020 and 2024.
The Payments NZ, the governing body of New Zealand’s payments system, has temporarily increased the limit on contactless payment from $53.96 to $134.89. That would push the usage of contactless cards for in-store purchases.
According to data, similar measures have been undertaken in the UK and Australia.
