    Pandemic accelerates mobile payments in New Zealand

    ,
    Payments has emerged as a key area of digital disruption. The shift from physical to electronic payments has seen an ever-expanding range of payment methods replacing cash.

The emergence of e-commerce and proximity payment and the increasing adoption of smartphones and high-speed mobile data network have further boosted the adoption of mobile payment. Smartphone technology has lowered barriers to entry and enabled new entrants to take on traditional financial services firms by unbundling payments from account-holding and lending, and by offering more targeted products and customer experiences. Incumbent payments providers, principally banks, have responded by launching their own online payment services.

    Disruption In – Banking on disruption

    ,

    Banks act as the intermediary between borrowers and lenders. Digital disruption is the enabling platform that connects borrowers and lenders while circumventing banks. Where banks once relied on scale (including brick and mortar infrastructure), asymmetric information barriers, regulatory barriers and vertical integration – technology is unbundling the value chain.
