Online banking up in Poland

The number of individual customers with access to online bank accounts in Poland rose to 35.5 million at the end of the final quarter of last year.

The figure was 2.33 million more than in the same period in 2016, according to the Polish Bank Association (ZBP).

The number of active online clients — those who use such services at least once a month — stands at almost 16 million.

The Vice-President of the Polish Bank Association, Włodzimierz Kiciński, said that the average active online banking client made six money transfers a month in 2017.

He added that the frequency of cash withdrawals from ATMs and the number of such devices was decreasing every year as Poland heads towards a cashless economy.

Last year, Poles carried out almost 1.8 billion bank transfers for a total amount of PLN 4.75 trillion (USD 1.39 trillion, EUR 1.13 trillion).
