KEY HIGHLIGHTS
  • The Swiss Competition Commission (Comco) lowered the interchange fees of Visa and MasterCard credit cards from August 1, 2015. Under the new regulation, the interchange fee for credit cards is capped at 0.70%; reduced from the existing 0.95%. The Comco is planning to further reduce it to 0.44% from August 1, 2017. According to Comco, the reduction in fees is expected to result in a saving of US$52–62.3 million (CHF50–60 million) annually for merchants. However, it is anticipated to have a major impact on the profitability of the card issuers over the forecast period (2016–2020). With a reduction in revenue, issuers are likely to cut down on card offerings and benefits for consumers.
  • The uptake of alternative payments among Swiss consumers is gaining traction due to the availability of a number of options, such as PayPal and Sofort. Most recently, in July 2016, Apple launched its mobile payment (m-payment) service, Apple Pay, allowing consumers to make contactless m-payments and online payments. Prominent retailers accepting Apple Pay in Switzerland include Aldi, Avec, C&A, k kiosk, Mobile Zone, P&B, Spar and TopCC. In February 2016, SIX Payment Services Ltd, a Swiss card-based electronic payment transaction company, expanded the scope of its Paymit service, enabling users to make m-payments using QR codes. Similarly, PostFinance and MasterCard launched their respective digital wallets – Twint and MasterPass – in 2015. The entry of new payment solutions is likely to intensify competition in the Swiss alternative payments market.
  • Contactless technology is gaining prominence among Swiss consumers, as banks, card issuers and technology providers are introducing this technology in their product offerings. According to the Swiss National Bank (SNB) – the central bank of Switzerland, the number of contactless cards was 7.1 million in 2015, and this is expected double to reach 14.2 million by 2020, as banks and card issuers are keen on promoting contactless cards. All major banks in the country – including UBS, Credit Suisse and PostFinance – offer payment cards with a contactless functionality. To benefit from this trend, retailers such as IKEA, Jumbo, kkiosk, Coop, Migros and McDonalds are also accepting contactless payments.
