Speakers’ key statements
Alla Bakina, Head of National Payment System Department, Bank of Russia: “A recent important trend is the growth of remote payments. The most significant dynamics – an increase by 6% – can be seen in the individuals segment. Also, the number of accounts accessed remotely grew by 18%, while their share in the total number of individual accounts reached 79%. Generally, people stopped using cards for cash withdrawals alone. In 2016, the volume of non-cash payments grew by 6%, with an increase in their value by 7%. Payment cards are used in 77% of remote payments, and EDS-based payments are also gaining popularity.”
NSPK Head Vladimir Komlev stated that the cards issued by Mir National Payment System are already accepted all over Russia. Also, Mir is expected to support Apple Pay, Samsung Pay or Android by the year end. “The project is scheduled for launch with a number of banks by the end of 2017. Respective commercial solutions are already in place,” V. Komlev added.
