Key Highlights
- The uptake of alternative payments among Australian consumers is gaining traction due to the availability of a number of options, such as Bpay, POLi payments, Paymate and PayPal. Most recently, in June 2016, Samsung Pay 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 Bank’s ANZ Mobile Pay the next month, respectively. Also, the country has presence of number of global alternative payment solutions such as Apple Pay, Master Pass and Android Pay. The entry of new payment solutions is likely to intensify competition in Australia’s alternative payments market.

- 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, the Commonwealth Bank of Australia (CBA) launched the Tap & Pay service for Android smartphone users. The service is based on near-field communication (NFC) technology, linked to the 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 drive contactless payments over the forecast period (2016–2020).

- The cost incurred on card transactions by merchants in Australia is passed on to the customers in the form of surcharges. To regulate excessive surcharges on credit and debit card payments, Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) – the central bank in May 2016 issued a set of new guidelines. Under this, surcharge will be limited to costs incurred by merchants including bank fees and terminal costs. The new regulation is anticipated to result in a reduction in card payment cost and will ease cost pressure on goods and services for consumers. The new regulation will be effective from September 1, 2016 for large merchant and September 1, 2017 for other merchants.
