During the same year, the government also legalized third-party payment platforms by amending the Act Governing Electronic Payment Institutions, allowing non-banking companies to offer third-party electronic payment services. These initiatives are expected to support growth in electronic payments.
- Rising smartphone use for payments and banks’ increased focus on cashless payments have led to a proliferation of mobile payments based on NFC.
