Scope

– To simplify electronic and mobile payments in the country, in November 2017 the Singapore Payments Council announced the development of a common standard for Singapore Quick Response Code payments within the market, designed to work across all schemes, e-wallets, and banks. The new QR system was developed by an industry taskforce co-led by the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) and Infocomm Media Development Authority. It uses international QR code protocols tweaked for the specific requirements of the market. The system will be adopted and deployed by payment service providers in Singapore throughout 2018. Additionally, app providers and banks have agreed to update their services in order to use the new system. For consumers, this new standard potentially means that any QR code-based service they choose can be used at any merchant, simplifying the purchasing experience. For merchants this move will reduce any work required to accept multiple QR code-based services.
– To offer instant payments, a new peer-to-peer (P2P) fund transfer service PayNow was launched in June 2017. This service is available to customers of Citibank Singapore, DBS Bank, HSBC, Maybank, OCBC Bank, Standard Chartered Bank, and UOB. Customers of these seven participating banks can send and receive Singapore dollar funds from one bank to another instantly through the FAST payment platform, using just their mobile number or National Registration Identity Card number. According to the Association of Banks in Singapore, more than 50,000 registrations were received to link mobile numbers to bank accounts through PayNow on launch day alone.
– To offer convenient transport payments, in March 2017 Mastercard and the Land Transport Authority of Singapore (LTA) launched a pilot scheme whereby passengers can use Mastercard-branded contactless cards to make public transport payments. According to the LTA, more than 100,000 commuters have signed up for the pilot since its launch, and an average of 60,000 transactions are being made daily. To enable even more commuters to use this service, Visa and NETS will also come on board from June 2018. Furthermore, as part of the pilot with Mastercard, the LTA will trial the use of mobile payment solutions such as Android Pay, Apple Pay, and Samsung Pay for public transport payments from the first quarter of 2018.
