Contactless cards are expected to gain traction in Morocco. The domestic interbank network switch, the Centre Monétique Interbancaire (CMI) and MasterCard launched contactless payment cards in October 2015. To increase contactless uptake, contactless POS terminals were deployed in Casablanca, and will be gradually expanded to other cities such as Rabat and Marrakech. According to the CMI, 6,000 contactless POS terminals will be installed by the end of 2016, with plans to increase the number to 17,000 by the end of 2017.
Payment service providers (PSPs) are offering terminals at lower costs to increase uptake of mobile point of sale (mPOS) among small merchants. One of the latest is the introduction of an mPOS solution by the CMI in October 2015, to enable self-employed professionals and micro-merchants to accept card payments by smartphone or tablet. The introduction of low-cost solutions is expected to encourage merchants to accept card-based payments.
As part of moves to establish a full Islamic finance industry in the country, the Moroccan government approved a new banking law in June 2014. The initiative is expected to allow new entrants to enter the Moroccan banking sector, and introduce Sharia-compliant credit cards on a large scale. The central bank of Morocco is planning to give permission to 10 banks in Morocco to offer Islamic banking products and services by the end of 2016.
