Mobile Payments

Taiwan government to incentivise mobile payments

Friday 12 January 2018 | 10:46 AM CET

The Taiwan government has planned to promote adoption of mobile payments by subsidising transaction fees to make in-store mobile payments more attractive to consumers.

Government departments can help promote mobile payments by subsidising transaction fees or selecting stores based on whether they provide mobile payment options, as well as by offering discounts for mobile payments. The Ministry of Finance will provide a tax incentive to small businesses by allowing them to continue paying 1% in business tax, even if their business expands, as long as they provide mobile payment options to customers.

Taiwan is ripe for mobile payment adoption, and government incentives could create an effective way of encouraging consumer use.
