Key Highlights

- Amid mounting credit card debt, the Banking Regulation and Supervision Agency (BDDK) introduced new set of credit card regulations in October 2013. According to the new regulations, payment in installments is limited to six months, to a maximum of 12 months. Furthermore, the minimum monthly payment on credit cards has been increased from 25% to 30%. These regulations resulted in the slow growth of credit card transaction value and volume at POS in 2014, with the same trend expected to continue over the forecast period (2015–2019).

- Telecom companies have played a key role in spreading new forms of mobile financial services in Turkey. In December 2013, Visa Europe, Garanti Bank and the mobile operator Turkcell partnered to launch the Turkcell mobile wallet. Under this agreement, the bank's customers can make contactless payments using their NFC-enabled smartphones at any of the 78,000 contactless-enabled terminals across Turkey or the 1.2 million contactless-enabled terminals across Europe. This is anticipated to drive contactless payments over the forecast period.

- In 2012, the Interbank Card Centre of Turkey (BKM) launched a digital wallet called BKM Express. This wallet lets its users transfer money quickly (person-to-person) and shop securely 24/7 without sharing card details with merchants. All large banks in Turkey support payments through the BKM Express wallet. This move is anticipated to further increase the scope for online shopping, driving card-based payments.
