Sberbank before the end of the year equips 50-60% of all ATMs contactless technology operations, and over the next year, all the Bank’s ATMs will be equipped with NFC readers, told journalists the first Deputy Chairman of Sberbank Lev Khasis.

«You know that now the vast majority of POS terminals are equipped with NFC technology, which allow instead of paying for physical cards to pay for your smartphones…. I think that by the end of the year 50-60% of the savings Bank ATMs will be equipped with this technology. And for 2019 — all», — he said, speaking at the launch of the marketplace «Take!».

«The need in the plastic card itself will disappear», — concluded the Khasis.

Sberbank in late August reported that at the time 31 thousand devices were equipped with NFC readers. The ATM network of the Bank consists of 76 thousand units.

Sberbank in mid-October together with the international payment system Visa have launched a debit card without the plastic carrier. The Bank then noted that it will allow Russians to pay for purchases online and in stores with your smartphone.
