Scope

- With rising non-cash payments in the country, the need for a real-time payment processing system has intensified. In line with this the Hong Kong Monetary Authority (HKMA) is working with Hong Kong Interbank Clearing to launch the Faster Payment System in 2018. Currently, the Hong Kong Dollar Clearing House Automated Transfer System, the country’s real-time gross settlement system, is accountable for settling high-value interbank transactions, while low-value transactions are processed through electronic clearing.
- Alternative payments are gaining traction in the country. In June 2017 UnionPay launched its HCE- and tokenization-based m-payment service QuickPass, enabling users to pay using their UnionPay QuickPass chip card or mobile QuickPass-enabled smartphones and wearable devices at contactless POS terminals. Similarly, in May 2017 Samsung Pay was introduced in Hong Kong, allowing users to make purchases at participating stores with Samsung devices across all forms of terminals, including magnetic stripe, EMV, and NFC. Likewise, to offer convenient wallet top-up options, in June 2017 HKT Payments announced that Bank of China customers who use the Tap & Go wallet can instantly add funds through the ‘Instant Bank Transfer’ option in the top-up menu. Further, Tap & Go consumers can recharge the wallet by using local coins at HEYCOINS kiosks.
- Leading scheme providers such as Visa and Mastercard have also introduced payment solutions in Hong Kong. Mastercard launched the Masterpass digital wallet in July 2015, enabling customers to make online payments with a registered payment card using a mobile phone, without disclosing card details for every purchase. Similarly, Visa launched the Visa Checkout online payment service in December 2015, allowing users to pay for online purchases by smartphone. It stores users’ payment and shipping details and uses a username and password for authentication, streamlining the ordering process.
