- To encourage the use of electronic payments among Indonesian consumers, the central bank introduced a National Payment Gateway (NPG) in December 2017. The gateway enables the interoperability and switching of domestic payments, thereby creating an interconnected payment ecosystem. Prior to the NPG, payment cards could only be used on devices from the same bank. In addition, NPG aims to enhance consumer protection by safeguarding consumers transaction data. With the interoperability and infrastructure sharing system in place, the merchant discount rate charged on payment cards reduced to 1% - down from 2-3%. Furthermore, as part of the platform, for domestic transactions the government has introduced ATM/debit cards with a national logo.
- Bank Indonesia issued Regulation 20/6/PBI/2018 on May 7, 2018 to amend Indonesias e-money regulation. Under the new regulation, any party wishing to conduct e-money activities is required to obtain a license from the central bank. However, the licensing requirement is not applicable to parties acting as closed-loop e-money issuers with a free floating fund of less than IDR1bn ($73,681.70). Similarly, with regard to deposits, unregistered users with e-money issuers can deposit a maximum of IDR2m ($147.36), while registered users can deposit IDR10m ($736.82). Further, the maximum e-money transaction value is capped at IDR20m ($1,473.63). The minimum capital requirement for e-money participants is IDR3bn ($221,045.10), which can be increased to IDR10bn ($736,817.00) depending upon the floating fund held by the issuer.
- The emergence of mobile-only banks in Indonesia is likely to further accelerate the shift towards electronic payments. Singapore-based DBS Bank launched its mobile-only bank, digibank, in August 2017 enabling consumers to open a digibank account by providing their biometric scans to digibank agents, track their spending, and make fund transfers and cash withdrawals with zero administration fees. More recently, in August 2018 United Overseas Bank (UOB) announced plans to launch its digital bank in Indonesia in the coming months. UOB aims to deploy its services in two variants - a digital bank app targeting Gen Z and millennials, and the upgradation of conventional services for the baby boomer segment.
