Scope
- In a bid to promote electronic payments, the Association of Banks of Singapore introduced a P2P transfer service called PayNow in June 2017, which enables interbank transfers using mobile phone numbers. PayNow allows senders to make fund transfers via FAST using just the recipient’s mobile number or NRIC number. The service is available to customers of Bank of China, Citibank, DBS Bank, HSBC, ICBC, Maybank, OCBC Bank, Standard Chartered and UOB. In addition, in August 2018 PayNow Corporate was launched for businesses, which enables businesses to pay and receive funds in domestic currency instantly by linking their respective Unique Entity Number to their Singapore bank account. To further enhance the customer experience, a QR code option is also available to give businesses more channels through which to receive payments.
- In May 2019, the central banks MAS and Bank of Canada are leveraging the use of blockchain technology for cross-border payments. Both central banks have sent digital currencies using blockchain technology to make cross-border payments cheaper, faster and safer. To facilitate the payment, MAS’s domestic payment network, Project Ubin, was linked up with Project Jasper (its Canadian counterpart). Meanwhile, part of the test was done in partnership with Accenture and JPMorgan Chase.
- To offer online buyers easy and convenient payment options, shoppers are offered a pay later instalment facility. In July 2019, the Singaporean e-commerce platform Shopee, in collaboration with Wirecard, introduced an instalment payment plan enabling consumers to purchase big-ticket products and pay in fixed monthly instalments for a period of 6 or 12 months. Furthermore, to capitalize on growing e-commerce, in October 2019 Amazon launched the local version of its online marketplace, Amazon.sg, enabling users to access international goods as well as products from local SMEs. Previously, shoppers could only access Amazon.com with lesser availability for shipping to Singapore, along with high shipping fees.
