Payments in Russia 2017: What Consumers Want
"Payments in Russia 2017: What Consumers Want", report examines the consumer payments market in Russia, considering payment cards, online payments, P2P payments, and newer payment technologies such as mobile wallets and contactless. The report also examines the main regulatory players overseeing the market.
Although cash plays a dominant role, accounting for 52.1% of total transaction volume in 2017, the Russian payment card market is gradually shifting towards electronic payments, as it grew substantially in terms of both transaction volume and value during the review period. The uptake of electronic payments can be attributed mainly to government initiatives such as financial inclusion programs, regulations to cap cash payments, and the introduction of the National Payment Card System, which launched the first national payment card, Mir, in December 2015. The introduction of new payment technologies and the growth of e-commerce payments are expected to increase electronic payment adoption in the Russian market. The modernization of the country’s payments infrastructure and the gradual adoption of contactless technology by Russian consumers will support the transition to cashless payments.
