Cash remains the preferred method of consumer payment, accounting for 56.2% of the total transaction volume in 2016. Consumers in the Czech Republic generally use cash for day-to-day, low-value transactions. However, its use declined during the review period due to a growing preference for payment cards and an increase in contactless transactions.

Czech economy has registered robust growth since 2014, supported by a decline in oil prices, increased investment activity, and government policy to encourage exports and domestic demand. Economic growth and disposable incomes are expected to accelerate over the forecast period (2016-20), which will drive investment in the country’s cards and payments industry.

Payment cards market grew significantly in the Czech Republic during the review period (2012-16), as consumers are increasingly spending more with their payment cards.

The total transaction value of the e-commerce market posted a review-period CAGR of 32.2%, from $2.0bn (CZK52.9bn) in 2012 to $6.3bn (CZK161.8bn) in 2016. A high mobile penetration rate, consumer confidence in online transactions, and the presence of a secure online gateway were responsible for driving this growth. According to Ecommerce Europe, 80.0% of the Czech population above the age of 14 years - equivalent to 7.1 million individuals - use the internet, and 3.7 million shops online.

Banks and other card participants are introducing innovative payment options to encourage electronic payments and improve convenience in online shopping.

Overall, the number of cards with contactless functionality reached 10.9 million in 2016. Komercní banka launched a contactless debit card in collaboration with Visa in February 2014. The card enables consumers to pay without inserting the card or entering a PIN at point-of-sale (POS) terminals for payments of up to $19.45 (CZK500). In November 2015, the bank announced the installation of 6,000 contactless-capable POS terminals across the Czech Republic.
