  • Germany is the largest economy in Europe, with a well-established banking system. The country is observing a gradual shift from traditional cash payments to electronic payment methods. To aid the development of digital payments, in September 2023, the European Payments Initiative announced it is developing a mobile wallet solution called wero. The platform will be provided via associated member banking apps. In December 2023, Sparkasse Elbe-Elster Bank integrated wero into its banking app, offering instant account-to-account P2P transactions.
  • Contactless cards have proved effective at displacing cash in markets such as the UK and Australia, but more needs to be done to achieve the same success in Germany. Nonetheless, German consumers are increasingly using girocards for contactless payments. As per girocard, 80.9% of payments made using girocards were contactless in June 2023, compared to 74.3% in June 2022. The number of contactless payments is likely to grow further as more contactless cards are issued and merchants increasingly adopt contactless POS terminals.
  • The German ecommerce payment industry is the third-largest in Europe. The swift development of payment infrastructure, coupled with growing smartphone and internet penetration, have aided the country's ecommerce sector. Meanwhile, the COVID-19 pandemic forced consumers to shop online rather than using traditional offline mediums. To capitalize on this trend, in August 2023, German wine retailer Hawesko Group announced the launch of its online marketplace in early 2024.
