Scope

– The uptake of alternative payments among Australian consumers is gaining traction due to the availability of a number of options, such as BPAY, POLi, Paymate, and PayPal. Most recently, in July 2016 Google launched its mobile payment solution Android Pay. A month earlier, Samsung Pay had entered the Australian market in collaboration with American Express and Citibank. Similarly, in January 2016 NAB Pay was launched by National Australia Bank (NAB), which was followed by ANZ’s ANZ Mobile Pay the next month. The entry of new payment solutions is likely to intensify competition in the country’s alternative payments market.
– In March 2017, the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) declined approval for a group of local banks to introduce their own payment apps on Apple smartphones. Commonwealth Bank of Australia (CBA), Westpac, NAB, and Bendigo and Adelaide Bank had been seeking permission from Australian regulators to negotiate with Apple as a cartel, in order to open up iPhones to the installation of bank-branded mobile payment apps.
– To capitalize on the growing popularity of contactless payments, mobile network operator Optus added new contactless bands and stickers to its mobile payments platform Cash by Optus in February 2016. In 2015, CBA launched the Tap & Pay service for Android smartphone users. The service is based on NFC technology and is linked to the user’s bank account. Australia’s most widely used electronic payments system – Electronic Fund Transfer Point of Sale (EFTPOS) – joined the contactless payments movement in 2014. Initiatives such as these are anticipated to further drive contactless payments over the forecast period (2017e-21f).
