Key Highlights
The uptake of alternative payments is gradually increasing in Austria, with the availability of various options. The latest is the launch of the SEQR mobile payment app in July 2016, which enables consumers to make online and retail purchases using quick response (QR) codes. In August 2015, PayPal expanded its One Touch instant checkout service to Austria, which can be activated from the PayPal website and can be used to skip the login process at eligible websites to accelerate the payment process. Other alternative payment solutions, such as Sofort, Klarna, Paysafecard and Skrill, are also available in Austria.

Contactless payments are gaining prominence in Austria, with all major banks in the country including Erste Bank, Bawag PSK and Volksbank offering cards with contactless functionality. The number of contactless cards grew threefold in the last two years, to reach 9 million in 2015. In addition, contactless mobile payments (m-payments) are becoming popular. In June 2016, Erste Bank launched a range of NFC payments in the country. Users can make contactless payments using enabled wristbands, stickers or mobile apps launched by the bank. In addition to in-store payments, the payment methods can also be used to withdraw cash at NFC-enabled ATMs.

The Austrian Supreme Court made one-off loan-processing fees lawful in June 2016, allowing banks to include processing fees, payments and commissions which must be paid by borrowers in addition to the principal loan amount. This fee depends on the total loan amount rather than the actual expenses incurred in processing a loan, which is sometimes inconvenient for consumers. Charging a one-off loan-processing fee is a common practice that has been applied by banks for decades in Austria, and the Supreme Courts ruling will further encourage banks to continue this exercise. This may lead consumers to look for other low-cost borrowing options such as credit cards.
