Scope
  • The European instant payments system, SCT Inst, was introduced in France in July 2018. The new system enables fund transfers up to €15,000 ($17,997.92) in real-time within 10 seconds. BPCE, a major French cooperative banking group (which includes the Banque Populaire and Caisse d’Epargne networks), became the very first payment service provider in France to adhere to the new SCT Inst scheme.
  • To further push the use of contactless cards, the French central bank increased the contactless card payment limit. Effective from October 2017, card holders can now make contactless payments up to €30 ($36) without the need to enter a PIN. Previously the limit had been set at €20 ($24). The increased limit will further push the use of payment cards for day-to-day low-value transactions. According to the French central bank, over 1.2 billion contactless payments were made in 2017.
  • To benefit from the growing preference for alternative payments, banks and payment service providers are launching new payment solutions. For instance, in March 2018 Carrefour, a French retail giant, launched its mobile payment solution Carrefour Pay. The solution enables users to make contactless mobile payments using their NFC-enabled mobile phones. In addition to the 3,000 Carrefour stores in France, the solution can be used at all stores that accept contactless payments. In April 2018 Samsung also launched its mobile payment solution Samsung Pay in France. The solution allows users to make purchases using NFC and magnetic secure transmission technologies.
