Key Highlights
The French payment cards market has seen the uptake of contactless technology. According to the French Association of Contactless Mobile (AFSCM), the number of contactless transactions increased rapidly to reach 21.9 million as of September 2015, registering a staggering rise of 218%, over September 2014. In this regards, banks and telecom operators are launching contactless m-payment services. One of the latest being Credit Mutuel-CIC app introduced by Credit Mutuel in partnership with m-payment solution provider, Airtag in November 2015. Similarly, BNP Paribas expanded its KIX contactless payments service in April 2014, allowing its customers to make contactless payments for purchases of up to US$333.2 (EUR300) with a monthly ceiling of US$1,666.1 (EUR1,500). However, users must enter their PIN for payments over US$22.2 (EUR20). These moves are anticipated to further increase contactless transactions in France. To increase the uptake of mobile POS (mPOS) among small merchants, solution providers are offering terminals at lower costs. According to a 2014 study by Visa Europe, there were 730,000 small and medium enterprises (SMEs) in the country equipped with smartphones but are not accepting card payments. Therefore, POS terminal manufacturers are introducing low-cost terminals to increase merchant adoption. For example, iZettle launched a card reader exclusively for small merchants in May 2015, allowing them to accept mobile payments (m-payments) by simply connecting the reader to a smartphone. Similarly, Payleven and SumUp offer low-cost card readers for small merchants. The introduction of low-cost solutions is anticipated to encourage merchants to accept card-based payments, further driving payment card transaction volumes and values. Despite the availability of secure online payment solutions; Verified by Visa and MasterCard Secure Code, online card fraud grew during the review period (2010-2014). Card-not-present fraud accounted for 63.4%, the highest share of the total fraud registered in 2014. To curb this, banks in France are experimenting with new a technology called 'motion code' solution, under which the three-digit security (CVV) code on the back of the card is replaced with a mini-screen which displays a code that changes automatically at regular intervals. The project was undertaken by BCPE and BNP Paribas in partnership with Oberthur Technologies, and is presently under pilot. The two banks are planning to roll out the solution over the course of 2016. This additional security is anticipated to reduce the probability of card being used for fraudulent transactions online.
