Competition in Singapores alternative payments market increased following the launches of Apple Pay, Android Pay and Samsung Pay. Domestic banks and telecoms operators are taking advantage of the trend by launching their own solutions.

Singapores payment cards market has recorded a strong uptake in contactless technology with all major banks including DBS Bank, UOB, OCBC Bank and Citibank now offering contactless cards. To further encourage contactless payments, UOB removed the restriction on transaction limits of US$69.1 (SGD100) for contactless payments in May 2016. Similarly, DBS Bank increased its contactless payment limit from US$69.1 (SGD100) to US$138.2 (SGD200) in June 2016. While, other banks are contemplating to increase minimum transaction limit for contactless payments.
In July 2016, Mastercard and the Land Transport Authority of Singapore (LTA) announced a pilot scheme whereby passengers can use contactless cards to make public transport payments, allowing the usage of credit and debit cards for fare payments. If the pilot is successful, the country would join handful of locations, like London and Sydney, which embraced contactless debit and credit payments on their transit systems. These initiatives are anticipated to propel contactless transactions in Singapore.
