So, Gazprombank said that it plans to raise the maximum amount, but has not yet named the exact date of reconfiguration. Also about innovation, positive such banks as VTB, “Russian standard”, the PSB, but only in Raiffeisenbank expressed willingness to reconfigure the terminal in the night of April 13.
“Overall, the growth limit is a step forward that will positively affect the future growth of contactless payments and payment cards, which contribute to the transparency of the economy,” said development Director of payment solutions of the company “Motor” Zaur Besolov.
It is noted that neither MasterCard nor the payment system “World” is not going to increase this threshold.
