Banks and card issuers in Indonesia have introduced several new technologies to increase levels of consumer convenience. For example, with the introduction of contactless technology, customers can make payments for small value purchases in seconds. Indonesian mobile operators are also making efforts to establish the required infrastructure for near field communication (NFC) technology through which customers can make purchases via their mobile phones. Banks are migrating to Europay, MasterCard and Visa (EMV) cards in order to provide enhanced security features to customers. EMV cards store customer data on a chip in an encrypted format which has led to increased EMV adoption in several regions across the world. With increased security features banks are intending to offer cards that can be used in any geographical location without any security issues. The introduction of these new technologies is expected to compel customers to carry advanced and secure card payment solutions.
