Major Eurozone banks start the implementation phase of a new unified payment scheme and solution, the European Payment Initiative (EPI)
This experiment, tested with customers of the Regional Crédit Agricole Bank of Touraine and Poitou, is a first in France. It will last six months, with a view to marketing in 2020. This is an illustration of Crédit Agricole's resolve to make leading edge payment solutions available to its customers.
Crédit Agricole is teaming up with Samsung Electronics France to offer the Samsung Pay mobile payment service. This simple and secure solution means that customers of Crédit Agricole’s regional banks who have a Samsung smartphone and a Mastercard can now make purchases with their smartphone in stores with a contactless terminal. The payment limit is the same as on the card.
Samsung Pay will gradually become available to all Crédit Agricole customers by April 2019. More than half of French cardholders will then be eligible for Samsung Pay.
