The counter below shows how much money is estimated to be moving in the UK this year to-date. It highlights a number of incongruences in our payments behaviour. For example, we flash our cash more often than any other payment type, but when it comes to the amount we spend, cash falls down the pecking order, falling behind cheques and debit cards.
