Cash withdrawal from cards through POS-terminals of Ukrposhta showed a slight increase in May: 172 thousand transactions (increase of 7.8% in April) for a total of UAH 341 million. Most of all the services for cash withdrawal from cards are used in Donetsk and Sumy regions - the increase of the number of transactions was 56% and 59% respectively comparing to April. Such growth can be explained by the fact that not all bank branches operate in these regions and ATMs are not always available for cash withdrawal. While in the branches of Ukrposhta you can use this service.
We would like to remind you that Ukrposhta is among top-6 Ukrainian companies by the number of its own POS-terminals and has 7.5 thousand terminals in more than 4 thousand automated branches.
