Belkart announced the beginning of integration with the Russian Mir. At the moment, the integration of the payment systems is already working in test mode.
“It is planned that from the beginning of 2020, Belkart and Mir card users will be able to conduct operations in their networks on a reciprocal basis,” stated a representative of the company’s marketing department.
It is reported that Belkart introduced new tariffs in connection with the transfer of the issue of Belarusian cards to EMV cards and the organization of intersystem integration of the Belkart and Mir payment systems.
The Belkart payment system was created in 1994. Its goal is to ensure the country’s financial independence and to increase the share transfers inside the country. In 2017, there were 5.56 million Belkart cards in use.
Let’s recall that in February of 2019 Belkart and Mir signed an agreement, which implies the issuance of Belkart payment cards with a chip using the NSPK technology and the servicing of Belkart and Mir cards on a reciprocal basis.
