- The proliferation of digital-only banks is driving competition in the banking space, which helps to boost debit card holding. 365.bank, a Slovakia-based digital-only bank, was launched in the country in November 2018, after the completion of a pilot phase for six months. The bank offers a free account which comes with a Mastercard contactless debit card. Furthermore, it was the first bank in Slovakia to launch the payments service through wearable devices such as Fitbit Pay and Garmin Pay, in June 2019. - In September 2019, Strong Customer Authentication (SCA) was enforced by the European Commission to increase payment security. The rule mandates all payment service providers (PSPs) to adopt a procedure to verify customer identity while making online card payments. PSPs can use any method including SMS, passwords, PIN numbers, biometric data/fingerprints, tokens, or control questions to authenticate payments. Furthermore, another regulation was passed in September 2019 that requires customers to enter the PIN for contactless payments by credit card, if they pay an amount less than or equal to 20 ($22.91) for five times in a row or if the total value of multiple transactions worth 20 ($22.91) exceeds 150 ($171.83). - The Slovak government and central bank are taking several initiatives to bring more of the population under the purview of a formal banking system. One such initiative is the introduction of law on basic bank accounts, which came into effect in January 2016. All the Slovak banks are mandated to offer free basic bank accounts to individuals whose monthly income is less than 400 ($458.2). However, this limit was revised in January 2019, with the minimum wage being changed to 520 ($595.7). Now, individuals can opt for a basic bank account if their income is less than 1.1 times of the monthly minimum wage, 572 ($655.3), and 15 times of the annual minimum wage, 7,800 ($8,935.3).
