Key Highlights
- Competition in the US alternative payments market increased following the emergence options such as Apple Pay, Samsung Pay and Android Pay. Banks, card issuers and retailers are also launching new solutions to compete in the market. For instance, JPMorgan Chase offers Chase Pay, Walmart launched Walmart Pay in July 2016, while Capital One and Wells Fargo launched the digital Capital One wallet in 2014, followed by the Wells Fargo wallet in May 2016. The emergence of new solutions is likely to intensify competition in the US alternative payments market.

- The US government’s endorsement of Apple Pay is expected to enhance the contactless payment infrastructure, primarily due to the government’s announcement in September 2015 that it will use Apple Pay for social security benefits, national park admissions and other similar services. The deal allows social security and veterans’ benefits recipients to add government-issued debit cards to Apple Pay. As nearly 50% of the population benefits from some form of federal welfare scheme, this initiative is anticipated to further drive mobile payments (m-payments) in the country.

- The Europay, MasterCard, Visa (EMV) liability shift, as agreed by US card networks, was enforced on October 1, 2015. The shift requires that the least secure party in a transaction is liable for costs resulting from fraudulent transactions in a non-EMV environment. Consequently, merchants are at risk if they fail to install EMV-compliant infrastructure. As a result, the number of EMV cards rose significantly from 2.7 million in 2012 and is anticipated to reach 700 million by the end of 2016.
