Merchant Acquiring: Eastern Europe

Countries covered: Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Romania, Russia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Turkey, Ukraine

Author: Lafferty research

Publishing date: 31 July 2017

Despite a difficult trading environment, Eastern Europe remains one of the fastest-growing regions in terms of key merchant acquiring metrics. Although some of the region's individual markets are struggling to perform, there is no denying the continued strength of merchant acquiring in Turkey.

While the problems in some of Europe's leading economies are well documented, many Eastern European markets have been rocked by the knock-on effects of falling trade and the big US and European banks scaling back from the region as they look to dispose of non-core assets. Erratic economic growth has plagued many Eastern European markets in recent years and tighter liquidity and rising unemployment have negatively impacted the payment cards market, in particular credit cards.

Merchant Acquiring: Eastern Europe offers a fascinating benchmarking of the nine countries covered in the report, highlighting the many contrasts and experiences found within and between each market.

Merchant Acquiring research reports describe and analyse the changes taking place in the merchant acquiring landscape and build a comprehensive picture of the industry across seven main global regions: Africa, Asia-Pacific, Eastern Europe, Latin America, Middle East, North America and Western Europe.
