AMSTERDAM – 56 percent of Dutch PC owners who make use of internet banking still wants to receive paper bank statements, according to TNS Nipo.
The survey also shows that more than 75 percent is satisfied with the number of times per year that they receive a bank statement. 16 percent of those who do not receive statements at the moment would prefer to.
The research centre surveyed 600 Dutch computer owners on Monday at the request of RTL Nieuws.
A quarter of those surveyed receives a bank statement more frequently than once a month, while six in ten receive a bank statement of their current account once monthly. 16 percent of those surveyed does not receive statements, or receives them less than once a month.
ABN AMRO will stop sending paper statements this week unless customers indicate they want to continue receiving them. Two weeks ago the Postbank also introduced the possibility of stopping paper statements, a spokesperson for the Postbank said on RTL Nieuws on Tuesday.
