Today in Ukraine there are 30 million active bank cards, and the media are discussing the possibility of a complete refusal of cash. For 20 years, the Ukrainian payment market has changed dramatically: the first cards were issued in 1996, and already today non-cash payments have become familiar to millions of Ukrainians. In addition, banks are developing contactless and mobile payments.
