Acquiring turnover was USD80 million for the first quarter of 2000

Alfa-Bank began providing acquiring services for retail outlets in Vladivostok and Perm, and continued to develop the business in regions where its branches operate.

In the first quarter, Alfa-Bank accepted American Express at its acquiring outlets.

By the end of the first quarter, more than 200 companies were enlisted in Alfa-Bank’s Visa-Alfamobile and My World Card programs.

Corporate clients can receive gas cards, a joint project of Alfa-Bank and Tyumen Oil Company. These cards can be used at Tyumen Oil service stations.

Currently, ten of Tyumen Oil’s thirty Moscow service stations participate in the program. By the year’s end, all thirty stations will be included.
