- In an effort to boost electronic payments, in April 2018 the BSP launched an instant payment service - InstaPay - under the National Retail Payment System (NRPS) framework. The service is available 24/7, 365 days a year. Users can transfer funds of up to PHP50,000 ($999.11) per transaction in a day. The service can be used by individuals, businesses and government agencies with savings, current or e-money accounts with participating banks. Currently, InstaPay can be accessed via mobile banking apps or internet banking services; access via other digital channels will be rolled out gradually. At the time of launch, there were 20 financial institutions supporting InstaPay.
- To transform the countrys payment system and increase the acceptance of electronic payments, the BSP introduced the Philippine EFT System and Operations Network (PESONet) in November 2017. This is a batch-based electronic credit transfer system facilitating business-to-business (B2B), customer-to-business (C2B), government-to-government (G2G) and person-to-government (P2G) transactions in the country. It is the first automated clearing house in the Philippines under the NRPS that enables all Filipinos to perform electronic credit transfers. Under the system, funds are made available to the recipient instantaneously upon clearing or on the same banking day; recipients are not charged electronic crediting fees. As of November 2018, a total of 47 financial institutions had integrated with PESONet.
- To foster healthy competition in the Filipino credit card market, in May 2018 the BSP approved the new Philippine Credit Card Industry Regulation Law, intended to ensure safe, efficient and fair business conduct. The law comes with Implementing Rules and Regulations (IRR) that are set to allow new players, other than banks, their affiliates and subsidiaries, into the credit card market. The entry of new organizations is expected to result in transparent and competitive interest rates, innovative products and enhanced services. In addition, the new IRR tackles customer concerns associated with credit cards, including the transparency of charges and fees, unfair collection practices, immediate payments posting, consumer data confidentiality, and the fast resolution of complaints and disputed transactions.
