Key Highlights


  • The central bank of South Africa revised interchange fees for debit and credit cards from March 2015, reducing the caps from 0.55% and 1.71% to 0.44% and 1.48% respectively. This resulted in a decline in the overall merchant service charge (MSC) on both debit and credit card transactions. A declining MSC reduces the overall cost of card acceptance for merchants, encouraging them to accept card-based payments. However, it is anticipated to significantly impact card issuers' profitability over the forecast period (2016-2020). With revenues falling, issuers are likely to cut card offerings and benefits for consumers.

  • Alternative payment instruments are slowly gaining traction in South Africa, with banks, payment companies and technology providers introducing new solutions. MasterCard, for instance, launched its MasterPass digital wallet in South Africa, in association with Standard Bank, in July 2014. A number of other payment solutions, such as Zapper, FlickPay and SnapScan, were also launched during the year. To capitalize on the rising consumer preference for alternative payments, Zazoo, a subsidiary of the UK-based technology provider Net 1 UEPS Technologies, launched the VCpay mobile payment (m-payment) app.

  • To control growing consumer debt and payment defaults, the South African government amended the National Credit Act (NCA) in May 2014, to include new measures when offering credit facilities. The measures were implemented from March 2015. Banks are now required to analyze customers' income and take all monthly debt repayment obligations into account before offering credit facilities. However, the measures had little impact on the fast-growing credit card market, as consumers are increasingly using credit cards as a temporary source of disposable income. Low interest rates, in comparison with personal loans, installment facilities, flexible repayment options and interest-free credit periods of up to 57 days, are anticipated to drive credit card transaction volumes and values over the forecast period (2016-2020).
