Market study for DG Comp on online payment services

A consortium comprising Lear, Capgemini and Verian, and led by Lear, has been appointed by DG Comp to carry out a market study on the sector of online payment services.

The study will provide a comprehensive review of the ecosystem of online payments, identifying the main payment solutions available to consumers in selected EEA countries and collecting data regarding the business volumes of the main operators, thus providing DG Comp with novel evidence on the recent and expected evolution of the online payment sector. Based on these inputs, combined with an analysis of consumers’ preferences and their determinants, the study will assess the intensity of competition in the online payments sector and analyse practices that are potentially harmful to competition.
