Dutch banks are progressively switching from Maestro and V PAY to Mastercard- and Visa-branded debit cards. From July 2023, Mastercard and Visa will no longer issue Maestro and V PAY cards.

According to the Dutch Payments Association, over 30 million Dutch debit cards bearing Maestro or V PAY branding will be gradually replaced; by the end of 2028, all Dutch payment cards will bear the Visa Debit or Mastercard Debit brand. Meanwhile, consumers with a valid V PAY or Maestro debit card can continue to make payments and withdraw cash anywhere in Europe.

As of December 2022, 425,000 payment terminals in the Netherlands have been successfully updated, allowing merchants to accept chip and PIN-enabled Visa and Mastercard payment cards

Amid high inflation and rising energy prices, on March 22, 2023, the European Central Bank revised its benchmark interest rate to 3.75% (compared to 0.75% in July 2022). This impacts consumers' purchasing power as well as the cost of borrowing, thereby affecting spending via credit cards.

Additionally, heightened uncertainty owing to the Russia/Ukraine conflict, high inflation, rising commodity and energy prices, and the economic slowdown in Europe will impact the credit and charge card market, as both consumers and businesses will reduce their expenditure

Contactless payments are being deployed within public transportation systems. In December 2022, public transport operators GVB and EPS launched the OVpay payment service in Amsterdam, allowing commuters to make contactless payments for bus, train, tram, and metro journeys using payment cards or mobile wallets such as Apple Pay and Google Pay.

This will further encourage contactless payments going forward. According to the Dutch Payments Association, 89% of debit and credit card payments in the country were contactless as of December 2022 - up from 87% as of December 2021
