- To promote card payments in the country, the NBC collaborated with ACLEDA Bank, SATHAPANA Bank and Prasac Microfinance to launch the CSS on October 24, 2017. This platform allows customers of member banks to conduct various interbank transactions via CSS, including in-store payments, cash withdrawals, interbank fund transfers, balance enquiries and mini statements using payment cards on ATMs and POS terminals. The NBC believes that the expansion of the ATM and POS terminal network among CSS members will gradually promote electronic payments.

FAST Payment offers a quick, secure and efficient method of conducting interbank transactions in local currencies for commercial banks and MDIs. This service is supported by over 30 major banks, including ACLEDA Bank, Cambodian Public Bank, Canadia Bank, ABA Bank, Bank for Investment and Development of Cambodia (BIDC), Phillip Bank, SATHAPANA Bank, Vattanac Bank, Cambodia Post Bank, Hong Leong Bank, Kookmin Bank and Vietnam Bank for Agriculture and Rural Development.
- The NBC has taken a number of initiatives to bring the unbanked population under the purview of the formal banking system. In this regard, in September 2018, it partnered with Visa to launch a mobile app to improve financial literacy among Cambodians. The mobile app is available on both Google Play and the App Store for free. Previously, in January 2015, the NBC joined the Alliance for Financial Inclusion (AFI) as a principle member in January 2015, to promote greater financial inclusion in the country.
