Poland

Since Q1’17 the number of ATMs has decreased by 223 units – the Polish Radio reports after the National Bank of Poland. As reported, there were 23,528 ATMs operating in Q2’17.

The Polish Radio quotes Jarosław Sadowski, chief analyst from the company Expander, who said that “a major shift taking hold on the Polish market can be observed. People more and more eagerly participate in non-cash transactions.”

“The total value of cash withdrawals in the first quarter of 2017 was PLN156bn (EUR37bn), whereas non-cash transactions amounted to PLN122bn (…) Tangible money still reigns supreme but this won’t take long. The value of non-cash settlements is growing by 20 per cent annually,” he added.
