- Banks are offering multiple currency payments cards to capitalize on the increasing cross-border trade between Hong Kong and mainland China, and the fast-growing Chinese population working and studying in Hong Kong. For instance, the Industrial and Commercial Bank of China (ICBC) launched the ICBC UnionPay Dual Currency Platinum Card in July 2015 in collaboration with UnionPay. The card comes with Union Pay's Quick Pass service, enabling cardholders to make payments by tapping the card at 5 million Quick Pass terminals worldwide. While Hong Kong-based and overseas expenses are settled in the local currency, expenses in mainland China are settled in yuan. Similarly, Banco Nacional Ultramarino partnered with UnionPay to introduce a triple currency credit card in August 2015, which can be used in Hong Kong, mainland China and Macau.
- Alternative payments are gaining traction among Hong Kong consumers, with the availability of instruments such as Octopus, YuuPay, PayPal, Alipay and Tenpay. Introduced in July 2016, Apple Pay can be used by holders of Visa, MasterCard and American Express cards issued by HSBC, Bank of China, Hang Seng, DBS Bank and Standard Chartered. It allows users to make purchases at participating stores with Apple devices including the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, Apple Watch, iPad mini 4, iPad Air 2 and both iPad Pro models. Apple Pay payments are accepted by around 10,000 merchants in Hong Kong, and more than 10 million in nine countries worldwide.
- Leading scheme providers such as Visa and MasterCard have also introduced payment solutions in Hong Kong. MasterCard launched the Master Pass digital wallet in July 2015, enabling customers to make online payments with a registered payment card using a mobile phone, without disclosing card details with every purchase. Consumers can set up a Master Pass account by visiting MasterCard's website, and signing up with a participating bank such as Bank of East Asia, China Construction Bank, Dah Sing Bank and DBS Bank. Visa launched the Visa Checkout online payment service in December 2015, allowing users to pay for online purchases by smartphone.
