Scope
- To reduce the dependence on cash in the country, in March 2021 the Financial Supervisory Commission (FSC) announced a non-cash payment transaction measurement index, setting a target value of a 50% increase in the number of non-cash payment transactions by 2023 and aiming for transaction value of TWD6.0tn ($213.6bn). To achieve this, the FSC has established a working group to promote non-cash payment transactions and has continued to encourage the use of digital payment channels. Consequently, the volume, value, and frequency of card-based transactions are anticipated to increase further going forward.
- The outbreak of COVID-19 has resulted in a significant shift in consumer preferences towards the use of cashless methods of payment. According to a Visa survey conducted in Taiwan in August 2020, 80% of respondents were favoring payment cards instead of cash. According to the same survey, 44% of respondents said they were using mobile wallets more frequently than before the pandemic.
- Mobile payments have gained widespread acceptance due to increasing consumer awareness and acceptance among merchants. As per data on mobile payments released by the Taiwan Financial Regulatory Commission in March 2021, the value of mobile payment transactions in Taiwan increased by 132% in 2020 compared to 2019. In addition, the volume of mobile payment transactions doubled in 2020 compared to 2019. With the country taking steps to accelerate the introduction and usage of electronic payment systems, this trend is likely to continue over the coming years.
