In 2018 EAST began collecting data for POS Terminal numbers in Europe for the first time. POS (point of sale) terminals are the most widely deployed terminal type. EAST estimates that, as at 30 June 2018, there were 13,518,238 POS Terminals deployed in Europe.
EAST is not yet in a position to share the number of POS Terminals deployed in each country, but this is something that is planned for the future. EAST is also looking at getting data for the number of UPTs (unattended payment terminals) in Europe, but this is proving to be a challenge and no data is yet available.
EAST has been publishing data on ATM numbers in Europe since 2004.
