Payment Service Providers


The Central Bank collects statistics on payments, from payment service providers and payment system operators, in common with all other euro area central banks to have a perspective on developments in retail payments both within Ireland and more generally in Europe and to inform retail payments policy. Following recent innovations and developments in the provision of payments services, the ECB have expanded the payment statistics data collection under Payment Statistics Regulation (ECB/2020/59). The amending Regulation, published on 11 December 2020, introduces new and more granular reporting requirements in relation to information on innovative payment services and channels, payment schemes, and fraudulent payment transactions.
