Payments in Malaysia 2017: What Consumers Want?

Summary
Malaysian payments market remains cash-reliant, but has high growth potential as it moves towards digital payments. As the government and banks started to provide basic financial and banking services by expanding banking infrastructure, launching new branches, promoting agent banking networks, and making efforts to change consumer payment habits, payment cards gradually became more accepted. The growth of POS terminal penetration, the complete migration to EMV standards with contactless functionality, and significant recent developments in the e-commerce environment have all contributed to the ongoing digital transformation of this market.

To increase debit card usage, the government introduced a regulation to cap interchange fees charged by domestic schemes at 0.15% of the transaction value subject to a maximum interchange fee of MYR 0.50 ($0.11) per transaction, while debit cards issued by international schemes are capped at 0.21% of the transaction value subject to a maximum of MYR0.50.

Malaysia’s e-commerce market is anticipated to report a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 15% over 2017f-21e. This will be positively influenced by the implementation of the Digital Free Trade Zone (DFTZ), launched in March 2017 by the Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation in partnership with Alibaba. In addition, the April 2017 launch of Maybank2u, a new payment gateway targeting e-commerce entrepreneurs, is expected to act as a catalyst for e-commerce growth over the forecast period.

Scope
- While cash remains the most important traditional payment tool in Malaysia, cards will be used more frequently as the move to non-cash payments accelerates. To aid payment card growth, the central bank established the Payment Card Reform Framework (PCRF) in 2014. Under the framework, the central bank capped the interchange fees, focused on enhancing payment card infrastructure, and established the MDF.
- The Malaysian e-commerce market has a significant growth potential. To provide impetus, the Malaysian government in March 2017, implemented the DFTZ as part of the National E-commerce Strategic Roadmap that aims to support digital services, international e-commerce, and internet-based innovations.
- Contactless technology recorded a strong uptake in Malaysia with all major banks offering contactless cards.
