The Electronic Payment Service Providers Association (EFISZ), a socio-professional organisation of companies operating in Hungary that provide non-cash, electronic payment services, is a non-governmental, autonomous organisation for communicating and representing interests and promoting consultation, established by the founding members in accordance with the provisions of section 3:63 of Act V of 2013 on the Civil Code and of section 4 of Act CLXXV of 2011 on the Operation and Support of Civil Organizations (Civil Act).
Hungary may be the country in Central Eastern Europe which is actively involved in shaping the future of financial technology. Digitization has a key role to play in this process, and developing non-cash, electronic payment services is a part of that. As electronic payment is gradually becoming more widespread, the interoperability of payment channels is becoming more and more important. We hope that EFISZ can provide support and information to the public and to service providers, so that knowledge about e-services in finance can become an integrated part of our everyday lives.
