Consumer Payments Country Snapshot: Russia 2016


The Russian payments market is showing significant change as it slowly moves towards digital payments. In spite of cash playing a dominant role, new payment technologies will progressively gain in importance, with mobile payments and online commerce expected to contribute to increasing the level of electronic payment adoption in the Russian market. The modernization of the payments infrastructure and the creation of a National System of Payment Cards will support the transition to cashless payments.

- Considers the regulations affecting the payments market and how they are likely to affect both incumbents and disruptors.


- While cash remains important as a payment tool in Russia, cards will be used more frequently as the move to non-cash payments accelerates. Providers should promote card adoption and use merchant partnerships, reward programs, and benefits to encourage card use, while educating Russian consumers about the advantages of using payment cards over cash.
- As Russian consumers become increasingly comfortable with online commerce, this channel will report significant growth over 2015-20. While 49% of the number of transactions and 23% of the value of transactions are made using cash or cheques, mobile payment providers should promote secure and convenient products (features most valued by Russian consumers using cash/cheques online).
- In spite of recent progress, Russias infrastructure network is still relatively underdeveloped, with 1 POS terminal per 98 people and 1 ATM per 707 people. Since smartphone penetration is estimated to increase by almost 15% during 2015-20, providers should consider targeting the mobile point of sale (mPOS) network in order to increase card acceptance in the country.
