Scope

– Contactless payments are gaining prominence in the Czech Republic, with all major banks – Česká spořitelna (CSAS), Československá obchodní banka (CSOB), Komerční banka, MONETA Money Bank, and Raiffeisen Bank – offering contactless debit/credit cards. Overall, the number of cards with contactless functionality reached 10.9 million in 2016. Komerční banka launched a contactless debit card in collaboration with Visa in February 2014. The card enables consumers to pay without inserting the card or entering a PIN at point-of-sale (POS) terminals for payments of up to $19.45 (CZK500). In November 2015, the bank announced the installation of 6,000 contactless-capable POS terminals across the Czech Republic. In December 2016, Ingenico partnered with Dallmayr – a vending machine operator – to introduce contactless functionality in 50 coffee vending machines across the city of Prague.

– Alternative payments are gradually gaining prominence in the country, with the availability of a number of popular payment solutions including Paysafecard, PayPal, and MasterPass. Mastercard launched its digital wallet MasterPass in the Czech Republic in November 2014. In December 2015, Mastercard extended its MasterPass payment platform to FreshDirect, an online fresh food supplier. In November 2016, Mastercard collaborated with Shell Czech Republic to enable customers to pay using the MasterPass QR code feature at Shell fuel stations. Similarly, in August 2016 CSOB – a Bulgarian commercial bank, collaborated with SIA – an electronic payments provider – to launch the NaNákupy mobile wallet, allowing users to make NFC payments.

– To provide card holders with enhanced security measures, banks and card issuers are implementing biometrics authentication. In February 2016, VoiceKey – an integrated voice biometrics authentication feature – was launched by Worldcore. The solution can be used by consumers to access their bank accounts and authenticate payments. Consumers register a voice sample, and VoiceKey can then analyze a voice-password by 100 parameters to eliminate the chance of fraudulent access.
