Belgium Cards & Payments Industry Examined by Timetric in Its New In-Demand Report Available at MarketPublishers.com

10 Jan 2017 • by Natalie Aster

LONDON – There have been some important developments in the Belgian cards and payments space over the recent years; and the EU regulation pertinent to capping interchange fees for debit and credit cards took place in 2015.

Some of those who participate in this market (namely, merchants) benefited from lower transaction costs, while others (i.e. banks) experienced a decrease of their revenues on payment cards. Lower revenues experienced by card issuers are expected to lead to cuttings of their card-related offerings. The issuers are forecast to start focusing on new ways to obtain revenues.

Electronic payments are set to become increasingly popular in the country following the emergence of mobile-only banks (e.g. Hello Bank! by BNP Paribas) there.

Some banks have started to collaborate in order to carry out their projects (e.g. a unified payment platform for m-payments).
