NBU approved development strategy of national system of payment cards
National Bank of Ukraine approved the development strategy of the National System of Mass Electronic Payments on a new technical basis, head of the NBU department on information technologies and payment systems Natalia Synyavska told a press club, ForUm correspondent reports.
According to her, international card payment systems today are rather expensive for Ukraine, so the more viable option will be the development of our own version of such a system. At the same time, the technical platform of the National System of Mass Electronic Payments will be internationally certified, which will allow using the cards under the system within the existing terminal network.
"People will be able to pay with new cards in any retail outlet. The banks will only have to enter the new cards data in their accounting system," Synyavska assured.
