The development of the card payment system allows for lowering the costs of money emission and circulation and thereby leads to significant economic gains. Yet relatively small amount of research has been dedicated to the analysis of the determinants of these developments. Therefore, the aim of the article is to seek cross-country determinants of retail card payments. The focus of was put on two econometric models. One was constructed using survey data for Poland, the second model was based on panel data from the EU countries in the years 2000-2012. Based on the results from the second model forecasts for the number of cards and the value of card transactions per person were compiled.
