However, ATM withdrawals remain significantly down on previous 12 months.
It has dragged down the all round daily card spend, which in turn comes with ATM withdrawals, to 3 % below what it was in August 2019.
But compared to its great point for mid April, flash memory card shelling out is up sixty three %.
The Central Bank has today published statistics which detail flash card transaction data for July and some initial figures for this month – up to August 24.
But, ATM withdrawals are down thirty one % compared to last season so the overall spend remains smaller compared to August 2019.
The 3rd stage of the lifting of restrictions in July was certainly noticeable in very last month’s card payments.
List spending remained relatively static in comparison to the earlier month with clothes up 9 % but groceries done 3 %.
But, the invest on food stays 36 % higher an annual basis.
Spending on electric goods and hardware also declined somewhat in July by two % but both sectors remained over thirty % bigger than in July last year.
There was, however, a jump of 160 % in spending on accommodation and a 24 % increase on transportation.
But spending in both sectors is always way below what it was in July previous year, with accommodation down 51 % as well as travel slumping 66 % an annual basis.
Paying in joints was up fifty six % in July but continues to be 20 % below previous year.
The switch to spending on services by buyers may have contributed to the spend on ecommerce remaining pretty fixed last month at €2.2 billion, that is actually up 1 % on June.
But e-commerce is still up 16 % compared to last season and now accounts for forty one % of total flash memory card expenditure, the Central Bank said.
