Australia Cards And Payments Market – Recent Developments:
In February 2018, the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) and its Payments System Board introduced the New Payments Platform (NPP), facilitating the customers with multiple bank accounts to transfer funds and make payments in real-time, promoting the digital payments for transactions of even less value. This platform offers services round the clock for all the days of the year. Backed by SWIFT, this platform combines 13 members of Australia’s financial services industry and offers PayID, a service that enables customers to transfer funds by simply proving the mobile number or email of the recipient.
The banking industry of Australia is expected to witness tremendous growth in the future with the advent of digital-only banks. For example, in May 2018, Australian Prudential Regulation Authority (APRA) has granted a Restricted ADI (RADI) license to Volt Bank, allowing it to provide constrained products and services to customers before receiving a full banking license. Xinja, a Fintech startup in Australia is also planning for a full banking license to extend its wings into complete banking. '86 400', 'Up', and other challenger banks are also going to initiate their services soon.
However, the introduction of various regulatory policies is expected to limit the growth of the credit card market of Australia in the coming years. A new bill aimed at barring the unethical practices of the credit card provides was passed by the Australian parliament in February 2018. According to this new bill, financial service providers should assess the ability of the customer to repay credit card loans in time, starting from June 2018. In addition, starting from January 2019, there will be a prohibition on the banks' invitations to increase the limit of the credit cards and any reduced calculation of interests. The banks must provide an online option to cancel the cards or reduce the credit limit. The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) has already prohibited the unfair collection of surcharges on the card payments from all business that includes small and large merchants. This new bill must be followed by all the businesses based in Australia or using an Australian bank.
