Each 8th respondent proved to possess more than two “plastic cards”, with 7% of the clients owning even three cards.

Utility, Internet and telephone payments as well as money transfers are mostly made by ATMs.

75% of the respondents named withdrawing cash from ATMs as the main reason behind possessing cards.
