Boston, MA (PRWEB) August 02, 2013
As one of the fast-growing BRIC countries, Russia has many industries worthy of closer examination and the domestic payment market is no exception. Though Russian consumers still overwhelmingly use cash as their primary payment instrument, in recent years they have increasingly turned to payment cards.
Payment cards are not the only fast-growing payment segment in the Russian market. Strong growth has occurred as well in bank branch and ATM deployment, point-of-sale (POS) terminal rollouts, and e-commerce which are comparable to growth in the leading international payment markets.
Join Tristan Hugo-Webb, analyst for Mercator Advisory Group's International Advisory Service and the primary author of the recently released research report titled Introduction to the Russian Payment Market, for a 60-minute webinar on this insightful report. The latest in a series of Mercator Advisory Group reports examining international markets, the insightful report discussed in this webinar analyzes the past, present, and future of the payment segments in the Russian market.
Date and Time: Thursday, August 15, 2013 at 1:00 p.m.

An examination of trends in payment card, banking, merchant, and e-commerce segments between 2007 and 2011
