European Commission sees bank kartel in France deter entry for newcomers
Good news is that the Commission's press release also reads:
The Commissionís statement of objections in no way challenges the legitimacy of GCB as the joint and effective operator of the CB card payment system in France.
So it's not a call for a different structural or institutional arrangement of the card industry.

Rounding cash payments
Also on the central bank website: a free CD-Rom to learn yourself the safety features of euro bank notes.

Further developments in the m-payments arena
Meanwhile Beep.nl is investigating how to add the Rabobank payment product Minitix to its payment portal for mobile payments. Effectively Beep acts as an integrator just like Bibit, but then for payment via mobile means.
Where will this end?
I think large retail players will operate their own payment brands; all the others will work with integrators or choose the most efficient and cheap payments brands in the market.
