14/05/2013

To the end of April, 2013, 3070 contactless POS-terminals of two Ukrainian banks were connected to Ukrainian Processing Center (UPC). In the April cardholders of contactless payment cards Visa PayWave and MasterCard PayPass made 1280 purchases in these POS-terminals. Monthly average of transactions in contactless POS-terminals grew up in four times from the beginning of the year.

Average sum of a purchase made by a contactless card reached 128 UAH. Among clients of UPC in Ukraine three banks issue contactless cards.

Also 574 contactless POS-terminals of Austrian acquiring company Hobex are connected to UPC. On average they process 3500 transaction per month. Average sum of the purchase is only 2,7 euro.

Anton Romanchuk, head of the board of UPC: “In Ukraine contactless payment cards only go in usage. The number of transactions is less than in Europe, the USA or Canada. But we are assured that contactless payments will widely extend in our country because they are faster and more comfortable”.
