Tuesday 24 June 2014 | 16:51 CET | News
One third (34%) of Germans use debit cards, credit cards or a mobile service on their smartphone to make payments in shops, according to a survey by Aris for ICT industry group Bitkom. This means that around 24 million people are paying without using cash. One in five Germans (20%) can envisage no longer carrying any cash and only paying for things using their smartphones, equal to around 14 million people. This is up from 1 in 7 (10 million people) in 2013.
