The Austrian cards and payments industry, which includes a variety of debit, credit, charge and prepaid cards offered by a large number of banking and non-banking companies, recorded increasing growth during the review period. Austrian payments are mainly cash-based, but the country is gradually adopting card payments. The most important payment card instrument is the debit card and in recent years, especially at points of sale, debit card transactions have increased considerably. Banks are offering bespoke products to meet specific customer needs and are increasingly targeting niche markets such as high-end customers.
