The number of online transactions completed by OTP clients has risen by a third since the start of the epidemic.
Electronic payment transactions are expected to double from 25% of the total to 50% in ten years, according to Csányi.
Revenue realised by retailers through the SimplePay online system grew to Ft 238 billion in the first half of 2020, a near two-fold increase from the same period of last year.
SimplePay has handled more than six million contactless transactions, and has 1.25 million registered users, said OTP Mobil CEO Péter Benyó. The fintech unit was set up in 2013.
