The French consumer payments market is unlike many other developed markets in the Western world in that card holding is low, with fewer payment cards than people in 2015. France has a highly developed point of sale (POS) infrastructure as well as a high penetration of contactless cards, although the market as a whole is heavily reliant on cash.
The credit card market is both low-risk and largely untapped in France, and providers may be able to carve out a niche in this space via low-fee offerings.
E-commerce accounts for the majority of online purchases by value in France, although m-commerce is expected to record a compound annual growth rate of 16% between 2015 and 2020 as consumers become increasingly comfortable using mobiles to shop online.
The French government has introduced legislation obliging businesses to install payment terminals capable of accepting contactless cards and NFC-based mobile wallets when purchasing new POS terminals.
