The uptake of alternative payments among Spanish consumers is gaining traction, with international payment solution providers launching their solutions in the market – the latest initiative being the introduction of Apple Pay in December 2016. In January 2016, CaixaBank signed an agreement with Samsung Electronics to add Samsung Pay to its mobile payment (m-payment) service. Customers of CaixaBank and its imaginBank subsidiary were the first in Spain to access the Samsung Pay service. This service is accepted in all stores that accept contactless payments, with the number of payment terminals amounting to over 600,000.

The Spanish government introduced a new regulation in October 2015, according to which either a bank or ATM network operator can charge consumers for cash withdrawals, but not both. In response, banks and ATM network operators amended fee structures to reduce overall charges for consumers. Bankia, Banco Sabadell and ATM provider Euro 6000 agreed to cap fees at US$0.62 (EUR0.65), effective from January 2016. While this initiative was introduced to protect consumer interests, it is expected to encourage use of payment cards among Spanish consumers.

The emergence of digital-only banks is likely to accelerate the shift towards electronic payments in Spain. The mobile-only imaginBank, launched by CaixaBank in January 2016, provides banking services exclusively through mobile apps and social networks. Through the mobile app, consumers can apply for current accounts, credit cards and consumer loans, manage personal finances and make person-to-person (P2P) payments. Users can also use the imaginBank Facebook application to find out bank balances and view recent transactions.
