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).
