- Following the announcement of new regulation in April 2019, the Chilean government opened up its merchant acquiring and processing space for new entrants. Since 1989, Transbank had been the single acquiring and issuing processor in the Chilean payment market. The new regulation intends to end Transbank's monopoly in this space and increase competition. As a result, multiple acquirers have started entering the Chilean market. In May 2019, acquiring solutions provider EVO Payments entered the market in a 10-year joint venture with Banco de Credito e Inversiones (Bci).
- The growing ecommerce market is encouraging banks to enter this space. In December 2020, Santander launched Tienda Santander, a digital marketplace allowing its credit card holders to purchase Apple products in up to 24 interest-free installments. Going forward, Tienda Santander will add new products and benefits on an ongoing basis, from everyday essentials to travel packages and gastronomic experiences. In June 2021, Banco Bice launched its online marketplace, BICE Store. Customers can use any credit card to make purchases in up to 24 interest-free installments.
- Card payment acceptance among Chilean merchants is likely to increase due to the gradual reduction of merchant service fees. Currently, the merchant service fee for credit cards has been set between 0.05% and 2.40%, while for debit cards and prepaid cards it is 0.05% and 1.15%. These rates are applicable to business establishments that join the payment card system operated by Transbank, which operates domestic card scheme Redcompra. Previously, in April 2016, Transbank reduced merchant service fees on debit card payments from 1.61% to 1.49%.
