- In August 2018, the Canadian government announced it had secured voluntary commitments from Visa, Mastercard and American Express to reduce merchant fees in Canada for SMEs accepting credit cards. Visa and Mastercard have agreed to lower domestic consumer interchange fees to an annual average effective rate of 1.40% for five years, down from the current figure of 1.5%. Visa intends to implement the changes in domestic interchange fees from April 2020, while Mastercard will from May 2020. Furthermore, in September 2019, the Canadian government announced plans to eliminate processing fees on goods and services tax/harmonized sales tax (GST/HST) for credit card transactions, which would help small merchants to save nearly C$500m ($366.5m) per year in fees.
- Payment service providers and retailers are increasingly focusing on innovation to offer convenient and faster payment services to their customers. In May 2019, Walmart Canada introduced a fast lane checkout, enabling users to skip the queue at a store. Users need to download the My Walmart app and further scan the barcode on their products using the app. Then, the user needs to visit the fast lane section and scan the order barcode on their phone at the barcode station. The user is then charged on their credit card linked to the app. Similarly, in October 2019, the retail chain Sobeys introduced a smart shopping cart equipped with multiple cameras, a scanner, a scale and a payment system for faster checkout.
- Online retailers are increasingly focusing on supply chain solutions to optimize logistics operations. In December 2019, for instance, Walmart opened a distribution center to fulfil its online orders delivery. Furthermore, e-retailers such as UNIQLO, Walmart and Home Depot feature click-and-collect options when shopping online. Customers can order goods via the webshop of a retailer and then pick them up in a physical store. To reduce waiting time and cost, IKEA launched the click-and-collect option at all of its store locations in August 2019.
