Service Providers excluded from the provisions of ZPlaSSIED

In the Republic of Slovenia payment services are regulated by the Payment Services, Services of Issuing Electronic Money and Payment Systems Act (ZPlaSSIED - in Slovene). However, the ZPlaSSIED also provides exclusions, for which its provisions do not apply to.

Therefore, the ZPlaSSIED does not apply to the services based on specific payment instruments that can be used only in a limited way, that meet one of the following conditions:

i. instruments allowing the holder to acquire goods or services only in the premises of the issuer or within a limited network of service providers under direct commercial agreement with a professional issuer;

ii. instruments which can be used only to acquire a very limited range of goods or services;

iii. instruments valid only in the Republic of Slovenia provided at the request of an undertaking or a public sector entity and regulated by a national or regional public authority for specific social or tax purposes to acquire specific goods or services from suppliers having a commercial agreement with the issuer.

Service providers carrying out either of the activities referred to in points (i) and (ii) (limited network exclusion), for which the total value of payment transactions executed over the preceding 12 months exceeds the amount of EUR 1 million, must send a notification to the Bank of Slovenia, containing a description of the services offered, specifying under which exclusion referred to in point (i) and (ii) the activity is considered to be carried out.

Simultaneously, the ZPlaSSIED does not apply to the payment transactions by a provider of electronic communications networks or services provided in addition to electronic communications services for a subscriber to the network or service:

i. for purchase of digital content and voice-based services, regardless of the device used for the purchase or consumption of the digital content and charged to the related bill, or

ii. performed from or via an electronic device and charged to the related bill within the framework of a charitable activity or for the purchase of tickets; provided that the value of any single payment transaction referred to in points (i) and (ii) does not exceed EUR 50 and:

  • the cumulative value of payment transactions for an individual subscriber does not exceed EUR 300 per month, or

  • where a subscriber pre-funds its account with the provider of the electronic communications network or service, the cumulative value of payment transactions does not exceed EUR 300 per month.

Service providers carrying out the abovementioned activities must send a notification to the Bank of Slovenia and provide an annual audit opinion, testifying that the activity complies with the limits set out in the ZPlaSSIED.
