- To boost electronic payments in the country, BoL launched the Single Euro Payments Area (SEPA) instant payment system, SCT Inst, in November 2017. The solution was implemented into the country’s payment system, CENTROlink, enabling individuals to transfer a maximum of ?15,000 ($17,183.22) within 10 seconds at any time of the year. To increase the scope and acceptance of instant payments, BoL partnered with European payments company SIA to access RT1, the pan-European instant payments infrastructure, in January 2018.
- In order to promote the adoption and use of electronic payments, BoL passed a new regulation in February 2017 requiring banks to offer basic bank account packages for a minimum monthly fee. These included a bank account, e-banking, a payment card, deposit and online transfer facilities, and cash withdrawals. The fee is capped at ?1.50 ($1.72) per month, or ?0.75 ($0.86) for low-income residents, applicable until December 31, 2019.
- Contactless technology is gradually gaining prominence in Lithuania. The number of contactless cards in the country is estimated to reach 1.3 million in 2019, up from just 73,000 in 2016. According to Swedbank, its contactless card payments value increased from ?0.7m ($0.8m) in March 2017 to ?14.0m ($16.0m) in March 2018. The bank was the first to introduce contactless cards in Lithuania in 2016. To further increase contactless adoption, BoL increased the contactless card payment limit to ?25 ($28.64) in October 2017.
