  • Key Highlights
    • To increase the uptake of mobile point of sale (mPOS) among small merchants, solution providers are offering terminals at lower costs. One of the latest being the introduction of mPOS solution for SMEs by domestic solution provider, SetPay in July 2015. The solution is compatible with iOS and Android phones, and comes with a chip and PIN reader which can be connected via Bluetooth. In 2013, Banco Santander partnered with a Swedish payment service provider, iZettle to enable self-employed professionals and micro merchants to accept card payments via a smart phone or tablet. This was followed by the launch of the mPOS solution by Banco Sabadell in partnership with Ingenico in the same year. The mPOS terminal was EMV-compliant and accepts contactless payments. The introduction of low-cost solutions is anticipated to encourage merchants to accept card-based payments.

  • The uptake of alternative payments among Spanish consumers is gaining traction due to the availability of a number of options such as iupay, Orange Cash, BBVA Wallet and Caixa Wallet. Banks and telecom operators are also investing to offer their customers a choice of payment options, whether in-store, at home or on the move. Most recently in January 2016, CaixaBank signed an agreement with Samsung Electronics to add Samsung Pay to its mobile payment service. Customers of CaixaBank and its subsidiary imaginBank are the first in Spain to access the Samsung Pay service. This service is accepted in all stores that accept contactless payments, with the number amounting to over 600,000 payment terminals. The launch of Samsung Pay is likely to intensify competition in Spain’s alternative payments market.
