– To encourage the use of electronic payments among Indonesian consumers, the central bank introduced NPG in December 2017. The gateway enables the interoperability and switching of domestic payments, thereby creating an interconnected payment ecosystem. With the interoperability and infrastructure sharing system in place, the merchant discount rate on payment cards – which ranged between 2% and 3% – was reduced to 1%. And for domestic transactions the government introduced ATM/debit cards bearing the NPG logo. According to the central bank, a total of 16.1 million cards bearing the NPG logo were issued in 2018.

– To enhance the security of the country’s payment system and boost payment card usage, the central bank mandated that all ATM and debit cards must be migrated to the EMV standard with a six-digit PIN by December 31, 2021. The transition has been taking place in phases; 50% of banks’ debit cards must be EMV-compliant by December 31, 2019. In addition, banks are also taking steps to enhance security for customer accounts and transactions. In April 2018, Bank Rakyat Indonesia (Bank BRI) partnered with the State Cyber and Code Agency to introduce a digital signature verification system to its mobile banking platform. Initially, the bank introduced digital signatures for validation when opening an account via its mobile banking app.

– 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. Consumers can open a digibank account by providing their biometric scans to digibank agents. They can then use their account to make fund transfers and cash withdrawals with no administration fees. In August 2018, Singapore’s UOB announced plans to launch its digital bank TMRW in five Asian markets. The Indonesia launch is scheduled for the end of 2019.
