SIX Payments 2014

SIX Payment Services saw online transaction volumes rise in 2014 alongside constant increases in traditional card payments using credit and debit cards at the point of sale. The range and volume of payment transactions made online, in high street stores and through a variety of other locations offering goods and services continued to expand in tandem with technical innovations. Mobile wallets, which became a hot topic in 2014, are likely to gain momentum in 2015 with the launch of Apple Pay. We also anticipate that NFC payments (near field communication) and omni-channel solutions will effectively remove the dividing line between online and offline activities. SIX Payment Services saw global transaction volumes increase 10%, rising from 1.195 billion in 2013 to 1.315 billion in 2014. The total transaction volume (MSV) amounted to EUR 57.5 billion. Almost half the transactions (48%) came from the international business of SIX. The number of cards processed increased by 2% to 25.7 million in 2014.
