Visa and QIWI Announce Launch of Contactless Smartphone Payments

QIWI plc and Visa Inc. announced implementation of a new stage of their strategic partnership, which has resulted in integration of Visa payWave's contactless technology into Visa QIWI Wallet. Now e-wallet customers can pay using their NFC-enabled mobile devices operating on Android 4.4 or higher in stores, cafes, cinemas, and hundreds of thousands of other points of sale equipped with contactless terminals worldwide. This joint solution brought by Visa and QIWI offers millions of Visa QIWI Wallet users new payment options and makes contactless payments accessible and convenient for virtually every user who installs the corresponding application on his/her smartphone. Visa QIWI Wallet account can be topped up in any of more than 100,000 QIWI kiosks throughout Russia, by linking a bankcard, or from a mobile phone account. The contactless Visa payWave solution is preinstalled in the new version of the e-wallet. Those who have already installed the Visa QIWI Wallet application need only to download the latest update. By combining their expertise, QIWI and Visa have ensured that the new service has a modern and technologically advanced security system. The effective algorithms used to verify the transactions are designed to protect users against fraud.

Target Corp. Reaches Settlement Agreement with Visa

Target Corp. said that it has reached a settlement agreement with Visa that will pay the card network and its issuers up to approximately $67 million for costs related to the retailer's massive 2013 data breach, which compromised approximately 110 million credit and debit cards. The settlement was conditioned upon issuers representing a majority of breach-affected Visa cards entering into direct settlements with Target and Visa. As a result, offers are being extended to the remaining group of eligible Visa issuers using a settlement formula that would enable them to achieve the same economics as the Visa issuers that have already settled with Target and Visa. In April of this year, Target announced a much smaller $19 million proposed settlement with MasterCard to cover issuers' costs related to the data breach. That settlement failed to receive the required 90% participation rate from issuers, and in May the deal cratered. Five financial institutions - Umpqua Bank, Mutual Bank, Village Bank, CSE Federal Credit Union and First Federal Savings of Lorain - fought the settlement and are pursuing class action status. That case is still working its way through the court system.

Independent ATM Operators Gain Legal Backing Against Card and Banking Companies

Independent ATM operators in the US have won an important legal victory in Washington. The US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia has reopened two class action suits, which allege that some banking companies resorted to anti-competitive strategies. Visa, MasterCard, Bank of America, JPMorgan Chase and Wells Fargo were alleged to have resorted to anticompetitive and illegal strategies. Visa and MasterCard are alleged to have enacted rules that protected them from competition from lower-cost ATM networks. If the cases are successful, lower-cost networks could provide a reduction in fees for both businesses and consumers.
