Key Highlights

The uptake of alternative payments among consumers in Luxembourg is gradually increasing due to the availability of a number of options, such as Digicash, Yapital and PayPal. Digicash, a mobile payment (m-payment) solution, was introduced in 2012, and its scope was expanded in 2015 to offer a person-to-person (P2P) payment service, allowing users to transfer funds to accounts at partner banks. In July 2016, Seqr, a mobile app by the Sweden-based m-payment solution provider, Seamless, was introduced in Luxembourg. The global payment solution provider PayPal expanded its P2P payment service, Xoom, to Luxembourg in April 2016, allowing consumers to transfer funds to a beneficiary with a bank account in Luxembourg. The emergence of new alternative payment solutions is likely to intensify competition in Luxembourg’s alternative payments market.

Contactless technology is gaining traction in Luxembourg, with banks and payment companies introducing new solutions to gain a market share. Retailers are also installing contactless POS terminals to benefit from this trend. According to Visa Europe, there were 7,000 POS terminals with contactless functionality in Luxembourg as of September 2016. All major banks, such as Banque et Caisse Depargne del’ Etat Luxembourg (BCEE), BGL BNP Paribas, Banque Internationale à Luxembourg (BIL) and Banque de Luxembourg (BL) are now offering contactless payment cards.

To adhere to the Single Euro Payment Area (SEPA) regulations, banks in Luxembourg abandoned the Bancomat debit card scheme at the end of 2011, and all the debit cards were replaced by V PAY debit cards from 2012. A number of banks – including Banque BCP à Luxembourg, Bank Luxembourg SA, BCEE, Raiffeisen Bank, ING Luxembourg and KBL European Private Bankers SA – offer V PAY cards.
