– To capitalize on the rising preference for alternative payments, international payment service providers are entering the Italian market. Amazon Pay and Apple Pay launched in Italy in April and May 2017 respectively, followed by Samsung Pay in March 2018. Google’s mobile payment solution Google Pay is the latest entrant as of September 2018. Currently, 20 banks and financial institutions in Italy support Apple Pay. Some of the leading retailers accepting Apple Pay include Auchan, Autogrill, COOP, Eataly, H&M, and SiMPLY Market.
— The number of contactless payment cards in Italy increased from 14.0 million in 2014 to 58.7 million in 2018, at a significant review-period CAGR of 43.1%. Contactless payments are now being extended to public transport networks. In June 2018 payment processing company SIA launched a new digital payment platform in Milan to allow customers to buy subway tickets at any contactless-enabled turnstile using Mastercard or Visa contactless cards.
— As part of its financial inclusion program, the Italian government has simplified the process of opening a bank account to encourage the use of formal banking products. In May 2018 the Ministry of Economy and Finance issued a legislative decree mandating banks, electronic money institutions, payment institutions, and Poste Italiane to offer basic bank accounts for low-income customers with an Equivalent Economic Situation Indicator (ISEE) of less than €11,600 ($13,918.39). The ISEE estimates the economic situation of families resident in Italy by taking into account their income and assets. Examples of basic bank accounts offered by financial institutions include the UniCredit Base Account by UniCredit Bank and Basic BancoPosta by Poste Italiane.
