Experts warned of possible interruptions in the supply of bank cards
The Smart Payment Association and analytical agency ABI Research warned of possible interruptions in the supply of bank plastic cards. However, representatives of Russian banks believe that the problem is exaggerated.
As they write "News”, Such a situation on the market has developed due to the shortage of microchips. According to the press service of the Russian bank card manufacturer Orenkart, some manufacturers are withdrawing even prepaid orders. At the same time, the shipment time is lengthened up to ten months in some cases, and those microchips that are in stock have sharply increased in price.
Some Russian banks are expecting an increase in purchase prices for plastic cards only from the beginning of 2022. However, although demand now exceeds supply, according to market representatives, this situation is of a feverish nature. And when reissuing or issuing cards, Russians should not wait for problems yet.
