Key Highlights

  • To limit the use of cash at retail outlets, the Italian government introduced a regulation in July 2014, making it mandatory for wholesalers and retailers to accept payments via POS terminals for transactions over US$39.8 (EUR30). This initiative is anticipated to drive payment card transaction values and volumes over the forecast period (2015-2019).
  • In addition to conventional POS terminals, merchants are installing mobile POS (m-POS) terminals. Payleven introduced an m-POS system in September 2012, and SumUp launched a similar system in November 2012. Similarly, UBI Banca along with 3 Italia and CartaSi payment system launched an m-POS solution in July 2014. The service is compatible with major payment networks such as PagoBancomat, Visa and MasterCard. The growing number of m-POS terminal installations at retailers is anticipated to drive payment card transaction values and volumes.
  • MasterCard launched the MasterPass platform for digital payments in 2014. MasterPass enables customers to make online or in-app payments with an enrolled payment card, without having to enter detailed payment or shipping information for every purchase. Consumers can set up a MasterPass account by signing up with a participating bank such as Banca Generali, Banca Nazionale del Lavoro (BNL) and Banca Popolare di Milano (BPM).
