Accelerating decline in use of cash clearly reflected here and in card transaction statistics in Finland (even without costs being visibly charged for ATM withdrawals..). Good news for all. On EU level the cost of cash usage was estimated to some 50bn€ some
years ago - and the consumer pays 100% of it + some profit margins for the service providers involved.
