WiseGuyReports published new report, titled “Payments in France”

"Payments in France 2017: What Consumers Want", report examines the consumer payments market in France, 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.
The French payments market is mature and highly competitive, registering the highest turnover per card for 2017 among peers including the UK, the US, Germany, Italy, Spain, and Canada. Average annual spend per card is also highest in France. Debit and charge are the most popular types of cards, while credit card usage is low due to the debt-averse nature of French consumers. Many are still heavy users of cash, but those who do possess cards - particularly debit and deferred debit cards - use them frequently at the POS. France has a highly developed POS infrastructure, with a large number of POS terminals overall as well as a large proportion of contactless-compatible terminals, driven in part by the French government’s efforts. A typical feature of France’s payment card market is the availability of multi-functional cards, whereby a single payment card is integrated with more than one function, providing access to several accounts via one card. The most popular combination is debit and credit facilities.

- The French debit card market is ruled by CB, a national interbank network that only operates in France. It accounts for 100% of debit cards in circulation, with 50.8 million cards in issue as of 2017.
- In December 2016 the government introduced a regulation placing restrictions on the ways in which cash and prepaid cards can be used in order to curb the financing of terrorism, which has affected prepaid cards in France.

- Until mid-2016, all domestic transactions were processed through CB. However, directives passed by the European Commission in June 2016 now allow merchants to route payment cards through their preferred network. This offers international players such as Mastercard and Visa the opportunity to gradually penetrate the French debit card market.
