Despite being the fourth-largest economy in Europe in terms of nominal GDP, Italians have remained slow adopters of electronic payments, primarily due to a strong inclination towards cash transactions. Cash accounts for 81% of payment transaction volume. The country has a comparatively low penetration of payment cards, although it has a robust POS terminal network. The governments push for electronic payments through a cap on cash transactions and the implementation of interchange fee regulation resulted in a gradual increase in payment card transaction volume during the review period. Debit cards are the most used payment card at the POS, followed by charge cards. Italian consumers favor charge cards over credit cards due to their debt-averse nature.
