". More and more EU citizens are making payments by means of payment cards, the internet or portable payment devices, and this is giving rise to constant expansion of the electronic commerce sector. To support competitiveness, it is essential to eliminate differences between domestic and cross-frontier payments, which, at the present time, are hidden or inflated in many cases. It has become especially important to prevent imitation of the dishonest practices of certain economic players, consisting in the multiple charging of the cost of credit card transactions where a number of purchases are effected through a single payment transaction (my question of 26 October 2010 –), as in the case of airlines. It has also become necessary to standardise and unify the operation of payment terminals so that they cater for all types of card. Increasing the confidence of payers, who must be persuaded that their electronic transactions are secure, is a separate but equally important issue requiring attention. Consumers opting for a cashless form of payment must be guaranteed protection of their personal data and the security of data concerning their bank transactions. The development of a Single Euro Payments Area (SEPA) requires the continuous removal of a series of barriers to operation of the European payments market set out in the European Commission’s Green Paper."@en1
