- As part of the governments Payment Systems Roadmap 2012-2016, the Bank of Thailand and Thai Bankers Association developed a national e-payment system, Prompt Pay, in 2016. This system was launched in January 2017, and is to be deployed in two phases. In the first phase, users are required to link their bank accounts with a mobile number or national ID number - thereby transferring money to recipients or making payments at merchants without the need to divulge bank account details - while phase two allows users to conduct other transactions such as bill payment and request-to-pay services.
- In order to develop the countrys financial sector and promote electronic payments, the Thai government launched the Financial Sector Master Plan (FSMP III) in March 2016; this was an extension to the previously launched FSMP I and II. The plan fosters the government, business and retail sectors to create an environment and infrastructure conducive to the adoption of electronic and financial payments. Some of the initiatives in this regard include the development of robust payment infrastructure, financial literacy among consumers, efficient pricing mechanisms, the establishment of an integrated IT system and industry-wide shared infrastructure and fraud monetary systems. Initiatives like these are expected to further boost electronic payments in the country.
- Mobile network operators (MNOs) are also contributing to the promotion of electronic payments. Leading MNOs, including Advanced Info Services (AIS), Total Access Communication Company (DTAC) and True Move H, are now all offering their own digital wallets. To further increase the use of wallets among their subscribers, in 2015 the three MNOs collaborated to integrate their respective wallets - mPAY, Jaew Wallet and True Money - allowing subscribers to make person-to-person (P2P) payments across the three mobile networks using recipients mobile numbers.
