The Slovenian card payments channel declined during the review period mainly on account of the recession that has crippled the country’s economy. The government took a series of steps such as offering stimulus packages to banks in December 2008 and February 2009 to improve lending to priority sectors.
The use of social media by businesses to promote products and services is gaining popularity in Slovenia. Banks such as Banka Koper, SKB and Nova KBM are increasingly making use of social networking sites such as YouTube and Facebook to reach their target audiences, improve brand awareness and promote products.
In June 2012, Visa issued cards that support contactless technology on its Activa cards. The emergency of new technology in the country is expected to have a positive impact on the card payments channel.
The prepaid card category is at a very nascent stage in Slovenia, with only a few banks offering these cards. The category holds a negligible share in the overall card payments channel.
