Payment Statistics

Business Business


The Payments Services Statistics present the payment transactions provided by Irish resident payment service providers to non-MFIs (excluding inter-bank payments). The data is provided on an annual basis and contains information on the counterpart location of the transactions, the payment instruments used and the terminals (ATMs, POS terminals) provided.


In common with all European Central Banks, the Central Bank collects these statistics from all Payment Service Providers (PSP) and Payment System Operators (PSO) to follow developments in relation to retail payments and to inform the development of policy in this area.
