- To offer enhanced convenience and encourage electronic payments for even low-value transactions, in February 2018 the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) and its Payments System Board rolled out a new payments infrastructure known as NPP. The service allows users to make payments and transfer funds in real-time 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year. Developed by SWIFT in collaboration with 13 members of Australia’s financial services industry, the platform allows users to enter only the recipient’s mobile phone number or email address to transfer money. The service is now offered by over 80 financial institutions, with over 3 million accounts created since launch. And in June 2019 NPP QR code standards were released, which enable payment providers to develop and offer QR code-based instant payment solutions.
- The advent of digital-only banks is likely to stir competition in the Australian banking sector. In July 2019, neobank 86 400 secured a full banking license from the Australian Prudential Regulation Authority (APRA). Volt Bank received a restricted ADI license from APRA in May 2018 then secured a full banking license in January 2019. Bendigo and Adelaide Bank rolled out pureplay digital bank Up in October 2018 as part of its strategy to attract millennials. Judo Bank, an SME-focused digital bank, launched in May 2019. Xinja was the latest to secure full banking license in September 2019.
- Australians have embraced contactless technology, which has become a mainstream payment option at retailers, restaurants, and events. The technology is also increasingly being adopted for public transport systems. In March 2018, contactless payments were introduced for ferry and light rail services in Sydney. The service was later extended to Sydney trains in November 2018, and was made available on buses across Sydney in July 2019. Commuters can make payments by tapping contactless debit and credit cards, supported mobile wallets, and wearables against contactless readers. The growing popularity of contactless has also encouraged payment industry participants to adopt new point of sale (POS) terminals. In August 2018, Australia Post rolled out smart POS terminals across its 3,600 post offices, allowing customers to make contactless payments using wearables and mobile devices.
