Retail Payment Solutions Includes Overview of Innovations Activities

The trends in retail payment solutions in 2014 and 2015 shows a consistent longer-term shift towards contactless non-cash payment methods. Would expect the same trends in 2019.

The continued decline Cash Payment Service in ATM withdrawals is likely to reflect a number of factors, including consumers adoption of new technologies such as contactless card payments that, like cash, provide for relatively quick transaction times.

The use of a PIN (Personal Identification Number) was required only for transactions over the eftpos network and for ATM cash withdrawals.

Growth in online commerce is most likely a factor, with everyday transactions increasingly occurring online rather than in person.

The relative use of cash for consumer payments had declined. Nevertheless, cash remains an extensively used payment method, especially for low-value transactions.

In contrast to cash, the use of Cashless Payment Service continues to increase - with the exception of cheque payments. In particular, debit card use continues to grow rapidly. Debit and credit cards are the most frequently used non-cash payment methods.

Growth in debit card use continues to outpace growth in credit card transactions. The average value of card payments continues to fall, reflecting a greater use of cards for low-value contactless card transactions.

For debit cards, the MasterCard and Visa debit systems continue to increase their market shares relative to eftpos.

Within credit and charge cards, the combined market share of the three-party card schemes (American Express and Diners Club) was largely unchanged. Below is the lists of retail payment solutions which includes an overview of innovative activities.

This list attempts to cover influential developments in retail payment solutions and schemes in the developed contactless card payments countries during the last 10 years.

Since various socio-economic factors have a substantial influence on regional developments in payments.

Rather than solely within that country; "Pilot" means innovations that are reported to be in the pilot phase; and "pilot {planned}" means innovations for which a pilot is planned.
