Scope
  • The Italian government and the central bank are keen to promote electronic payments. In October 2019, the government developed the Progetto Italia Cashless plan, which aims to promote digital payments and eliminate the use of cash. Various measures are being taken as part of this plan; these include incentivizing consumers via cashback bonuses for payments made using cards from December 2020 and lowering the limit on cash payments from July 2020. Meanwhile, to promote merchant acceptance the plan provides tax credit of 30% for merchants that favour card payments while penalizing merchants that do not allow POS payments.
  • To increase card acceptance among small merchants, in August 2020, Nexi (the leading acquirer in the country) collaborated with its partner banks to launch the Micropayments refund initiative. Through this initiative, small merchants are entitled to a refund on merchant fees for transactions of up to €10 ($11.23) until December 2021. This is applicable to payments made at physical and virtual POS terminals using Visa, Mastercard, and Bancomat payment cards.
  • To capitalize on the growing use of contactless cards and to enhance the convenience of making payments, in July 2020, Visa and Mastercard partnered with Turin’s public transport system to enable consumers to make payments for rides on the subway and buses using contactless debit, credit, and prepaid cards from these international schemes. The convenience of this payment method is likely to accelerate the growth of contactless payments in the country.
