Russia Payment Services Overview and Size

The advent and adaptability to non-cash payments have reduced the dependency on cash for doing payments. At the end of 2018, around 80.0% of the money in circulation was observed to be non-cash. Simultaneously, the growth observed in cash in circulation was less than the growth in nominal GDP, indicating a shift in the consumer preferences to non-cash payments. The rise in the non-cash payments can be further attributed to the rising merchant acceptance and breakthrough innovations such as e-wallets, m-wallets and contactless payments, which have promoted easy and speedy way of doing transactions. However, Russia has been categorized at the “Converging” stage for becoming cashless in nature. It is expected that the high commissions and tariffs charged from merchants would ease in the coming years in the wake of implementation of white label schemes throughout the industry; thereby easing the pain-points of merchants.
