The share of non-cash trade turnover in the third quarter of 2021 amounted to 58.8% of all expenses of Russians. This is stated in the study of Sberindex and the "OFD Platform".

Online spending accounted for a fifth (20.6%) of non-cash turnover in the third quarter. And in September, payments via the Internet set a record, accounting for 12.6% of all citizens' spending on goods and services, including cash payments.

The list of regions with the highest penetration of non-cash payments is consistently headed by the Far Eastern and northern regions. The highest indicator is observed in the Nenets Autonomous District (72%).
