The Cards and Payments Industry in Indonesia: Emerging trends and opportunities to 2021

Summary

Cash was the predominant payment instrument during the review period (2012-16), especially among the rural population, with cash accounting for 98.6% of the total volume of payments in 2016. This was primarily due to low awareness of electronic payments, a high unbanked population, and limited access to banking infrastructure. As the government and banks have taken initiatives to bring the unbanked population into the formal banking system, payment cards have gradually become more accepted. Payment card use consequently grew during the review-period at a CAGR of 13.9% in terms of volume of transactions.

Pay-later card market in Indonesia is still in the developmental phase, with penetration of only 6.8 per 100 individuals in 2016. Strict government regulation with regard to credit card eligibility remains one of the major reasons for the low penetration. Mounting card debt among consumers forced the central bank to introduce a regulation, effective since January 2015, according to which individuals with an annual income of less than $222 (IDR3m) are now eligible for just one credit card, while individuals with an annual income between $222 (IDR3m) and $740 (IDR10m) are eligible to possess credit cards from two issuers only.

Indonesian e-commerce market rose from $1.2bn (IDR16.6tn) in 2012 to $7.6bn (IDR102.9tn) in 2016. Factors affecting the growth of ecommerce include a growing young population, the increasing presence of online retailers, a broader range of payment methods, and rising customer confidence in e-commerce transactions. Growth has further been supported by strong investments from the private sector.

Traditional payment methods such as credit transfers and cards remain the preferred mode of e-commerce payments in Indonesia, collectively accounting for 66.9% of the total e-commerce transaction value in 2016. Alternative payments such as digital and mobile wallets and carrier billing are also gradually gaining prominence in Indonesia, accounting for 6.8% of the total transaction value in 2016. This is an increase from 3.1% in 2012.

Scope

– Bank Indonesia, the country’s central bank, is enhancing the security of payment systems in order to build customer confidence in payment cards. In this regard, the government has mandated the migration of all payment cards to EMV standards by December 31, 2021. Similarly, as of July 1, 2017 the central bank has mandated the adoption of six-digit PINs for debit and ATM cards, instead of four-digit PINs.
– Up until February 2016, the e-commerce market was in the government’s “Negative Investment” list – and thereby foreign investors were not allowed to invest in local companies or set up a business. To boost investment in the domestic e-commerce market, the government introduced a new foreign direct investment policy in February 2016 allowing 100% foreign ownership of e-commerce companies for investments over $7.4m (IDR100bn), while for investments between $740,000 (IDR10bn) and $7.4m (IDR100bn), foreign ownership was capped at 49%. However, the former regulation was later revised in May 2016 to limit foreign ownership up to 49% in e-commerce companies.
– Consumers in Indonesia are gradually adopting contactless payments. Consequently, Visa launched its contactless service Visa payWave in Indonesia in September 2016. This service enables Visa card holders to make contactless transactions without a PIN for transactions below $74.0 (IDR1m). Following this, Bank CIMB Niaga, Bank Tabungan Pensiunan Negara, UOB Indonesia, and Bank Mandiri adopted this technology.
