Bulgarian Lev (BGN)

As Bulgaria moves towards a cashless economy, digital payments are being embraced more and more due to their convenience and security. Card payments are the most popular choice, with an increasing number of point-of-sale terminals around the country and a greater emphasis on the benefits of contactless payments that came as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.
