- There is a growing preference for online and digital banking in Latin American markets including Colombia. Bancolombia, for instance, in March 2016 introduced its digital-only app-based bank Nequi in Colombia. Using the app, consumers can conduct basic financial services including opening a savings account, fund transfers, cash withdrawals at ATMs, and QR-based instore payments. To further enhance the security on the app, in August 2016 Nequi introduced mobile biometrics authentication. This allows consumers to login to the app via facial recognition technology. The bank had opened more than 20,000 accounts by January 2017 and plans to take this number to 650,000 by the end of 2018.
- The emergence of contactless technology has also supported the growth of card-based payments. Colombian consumers are increasingly embracing contactless wearables, thereby transforming the payments market. In July 2016, Banco de Bogotá introduced a mobile token for the Apple watch. To use the service, consumers need to link their Apple watch with the downloaded Token Móvil Banco de Bogota app. Then, via the token code generated in the app, consumers can conduct money transfers and payments using their watch. More recently, in 2017 Bancolombia via its mobile app also introduced financial functions for Apple and Android wearables.
- Alternative payments are gradually gaining prominence in Colombia, with banks and payment solution providers launching and improving their services. In January 2018, Bancolombia updated its mobile wallet (previously introduced in September 2015) to include biometric identification. Using the service, users can access their wallet through fingerprint identification, making it more secure and convenient. As of January 2018, the wallet has a consumer base of 200,000 individuals. Previously, in September 2016, BBVA Colombia introduced its BBVA Wallet which allows users to make contactless mobile payments of up to COP42,000 ($14.08) without the need to authenticate transactions with a PIN.
