The number of payment cards in circulation in Canada increased at a CAGR of 6.1% during the period 2012-2014.

Banks have implemented different pricing and marketing strategies to encourage consumers to increase card payments rather than paying in cash. Common strategies used by banks and card issuers are product discounts and reward points.
