  • 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.
  • Alternative payment solutions are gaining traction in New Zealand. To capitalize on this, the dosh digital wallet and mobile payment app launched in New Zealand in October 2021. It allows users to make P2P payments via smartphone. Payments can be made either directly to a mobile number from the user's contact list or by scanning a QR code generated by the recipient in the app. dosh allows users to instantly pay or be paid for transactions under $500. Users can add up to $1,000 to their dosh wallet. dosh works with all major banks in New Zealand, including BNZ, ASB, Westpac, ANZ, and Kiwibank.
  • BNPL options are popular among New Zealand consumers. To benefit from this trend in May 2021, Klarna expanded into the New Zealand payment market. Klarna offers both immediate and pay-later options for ecommerce purchases, allowing customers to make payments after receiving the purchased items.
