Carte Bleue Most Popular Payment Method in France

Shares

In general, major credit cards are the preferred e-commerce payment methods in France. The most popular method is Carte Bleue (often linked to Visa), followed by MasterCard, American Express and PayPal. Cheques are still fairly often used as the French seem to remain quite traditional and slightly anxious to use new online types of payment.

This is all revealed by the latest report on B2C e-commerce in Europe by Ecommerce Europe. Ecommerce Europe is the European umbrella organization for online retailers.
