Some 108,430 bank terminals operate in Romania
Romania’s bank terminal fleet grew by 300 ATMs and over 8,200 POSs, in the first half of 2009, BNR data say.
Although 30 bank issuers operate on the market, the terminal network continues to be extremely dense. Practically, the main seven banks in the system own 70 percent of the ATMs and 85 percent of the POSs.
As many as 51.8 million cash withdrawals and 14.26 million POS payments were made in the Q2 2008, vs. 54 million withdrawals and 18.78 million payments in the Q2, 2009, which is 4 and 32 percent up respectively.
