Scope
- In April 2019, Transfond (the operator of the Automated Clearing House for Interbank Payments) partnered with National Bank of Romania, the Romanian Association of Banks, and commercial banks including Banca Transilvania and CEC Banka to launch an instant payment service in Romania. The service is based on the SEPA Instant Credit Transfer Scheme (SCT Inst), and allows money transfers between bank accounts 24/7 within 10 seconds, up to a maximum of RON50,000 ($11,730.38) per transaction. The service is available for both individual and corporate customers, and can be accessed via the internet and mobile banking channels of participating banks. In January 2020, Banca Comercial? Român? (BCR) (part of Erste Bank) introduced the service for its customers.
- Improving payments infrastructure and the presence of global players will further accelerate the shift towards cashless payments. Stripe, a globally renowned payment services provider, launched its operations in Romania in May 2020. It allows online merchants and vendors to accept payments for products and services offered through their own websites and mobile apps, online marketplaces, and platforms. Romanian merchants can now access the entire Stripe product range and accept online payments from around the world in 135 currencies.
- The growing adoption of contactless technology for transport payments will further drive the use of payment cards. In May 2020, BCR announced it would provide contactless payment readers across 160 buses and 15 trams in Craiova city (operated by transport company RAT Craiova), with implementation set for Q3 2020. Travelers can pay for their trips just by tapping their contactless cards on the readers installed on the vehicles. In the last two years the bank has installed readers in 13 cities across the country, with over 8.5 million contactless payments made via the system.
