Only 2% of Russians completely abandoned the use of cash. This conclusion was reached by specialists of the Levada Center after the survey. It was attended by residents of 137 settlements of the country aged 18 years.
As the study showed, 89% of respondents most often use cash in everyday settlements. 58% of respondents use debit cards and only 15% use credit cards. 13% of citizens prefer non-contact mobile payments, 13% transfer money to merchants and 6% use e-wallets.
Mostly Russians pay with bank cards whose income exceeds 60 thousand rubles, the rest often use cash. In addition, more than half of the respondents carry up to one thousand rubles in cash, more than this amount only one third of the respondents carry with them. At the same time, four out of five people spend less than one thousand rubles on purchases per day.
