Banks and payment solution providers are launching new solutions to benefit from a growing preference for alternative payments. In March 2015 Sweden-based mobile payment (m-payment) solution provider Seamless launched its mobile app, Seqr. Following which, the functionality of Paylib was expanded in May 2016, allowing users with compatible Android mobile phones to make contactless m-payments of up to US$19.0 (EUR20) at 470,000 merchants. Apple launched Apple Pay in July 2016 in partnership with some of the country’s largest financial institutions.

The emergence of digital only banks is likely to accelerate a shift towards electronic payments in France. In January 2016, telecom operator Orange France acquired Groupama Banque to create Orange Bank. Orange mobile phone customers can directly subscribe to banking services through the network’s mobile app, via the website, or at 140 accredited stores. In December 2015, German-based financial service provider Number 26 launched its mobile-only bank in France.

The introduction of maintenance fee on saving and current accounts by major banks is anticipated to bring more competition in the French debit cards market. With profit margins shrinking and interest rates low, banks are introducing account fees. BNP Paribas introduced a US$2.4 (EUR2.5) basic account fee in November 2015. Similarly, BNP Paribas, Société Générale and Caisse d’Epargne Île-de-France introduced current account fees in the range of US$14.3-28.5 (EUR15-30) in February 2016. Banque Postale raised account fees from US$4 (EUR4.2) to US$5.9 (EUR6.2).
