According to the German Federal Bank, only 15 percent of Germans use the convenient plastic card for these payments. Lower falls this share of the total beyond the 500-euro limit, here there are only four per cent of payments that can be made with credit cards. While German consumers continue to prefer rely on wire transfers, cash and debit card, has the credit card in the United States the party can gain a solid foundation.
