More payments will be made through card than cash in Germany this year
According to Euromonitor International, the total card payment transaction value in Germany is expected to rise by 28%, while cash transactions will drop by 34% by 2025.
This growing trust from consumers over their privacy around card usage also supports this trend.
Meanwhile, rising trust in security measures and assurances from issuers and merchants is strengthening the confidence as well.
Germans are set to become heavy payment card users by 2040, with an increase in their mobile device usage for payments.
