Cartes Bancaires, safe and easy online payments

If you want your French customers to pay securely, Cartes Bancaires is the perfect payment method. It is a local French bank card that can be linked to either Visa or Mastercard (debit and credit) depending on the bank.

The Cartes Bancaires network uses a closed French infrastructure managed and controlled by GIE Cartes Bancaires. This structure differs from many other countries, where credit card transactions are handled via the Visa and Mastercard international networks.
