9 Nov 2017 PSA Payment Services Austria GmbH has recently decided to join the Berlin Group. PSA Payment Services Austria was founded in 2012 by splitting the former PayLife Bank Gmbh (now SIX Payment Services Austria) into two companies. PSA is 100% owned by the Austrian banks and is specialised in developing and operating card payment services for the Austrian banks. The two main fields of operation are developing and operating debit cards (about 9.6 million) and developing and operating the central ATM Acquiring services (more than 7.500 ATMs connected) for the Austrian banks. Additionally PSA develops its own ATM software which is installed on about 500 ATMs in the PSA network.
PSA Payment Services Austria firmly believes in open European payment standards and is interested in working closely with other European Payment Schemes and Processors on all prevailing Berlin Group themes, especially on all PSD2, MobileP2P and card related work items.
