Key Highlights
- The Argentinian card payments channel registered marginal growth during the review period (2008–2012).

In value terms, the Argentinian card payments channel grew from ARS265.4 billion (US$84.4 billion) in 2008 to ARS561.6 billion (US$123.8 billion) in 2012. Over the forecast period (2013–2017), card payments are expected to deliver strong growth as consumers increasingly move away from cash transactions.
- Competition in the cards and payments industry has forced issuers to employ effective promotional strategies. Card transaction discounts and benefits, which create consumer satisfaction and increased customer loyalty, are available. Benefits include complementary insurance, interest-free credit, overseas medical and legal assistance, and information on transactions through e-statements. Many banks have competitive interest rates on credit cards with deferred interest. Also available is a 5% VAT rebate on purchases made with certain cards.
- Technological advances in payment systems and its supporting infrastructure include EMV, NFC and contactless technology. EMV technology replaces magnetic strip-based cards with chip-based cards which store data and can be read with radio frequency identification device (RFID) or NFC devices, both of which enable contactless payment. These technologies have significantly reduced processing times and strengthened security measures, saving both consumers and retailers time and money. Overall growth in the Argentinian cards and payments industry is based on the adoption of advanced technology which will increase card use for transactions.

In Argentina, more than 30% of the country’s SMEs used e-commerce to make transactions including buying and selling of the products and services in 2013, and this trend is expected to continue over the forecast period, driving online card transactions.
