Pay-later card payments are not popular due to a cultural aversion towards debt. Dutch consumers are very comfortable using debit cards - accounting for 90% of the overall transaction value in 2017 - and online payment channels (especially local brand iDEAL, backed by wide acceptance and a convenient user experience).

Growth in the payment cards market is supported by well-developed infrastructure, with one POS terminal per 34 individuals. Growth in the e-commerce market is attributed to high internet and smartphone penetration.

In spite of a high level of consumer comfort with established payment instruments, recent developments in mobile proximity payments and contactless technology by the likes of ING, Rabobank, and ABN Amro will see these payment options gain traction among Dutch consumers.
