Key Highlights
- The Europay, MasterCard, Visa (EMV) liability shift, as agreed by US card networks, was enforced on October 1, 2015. The liability shift requires that the least secure party in a transaction is liable for costs resulting from fraudulent transactions in a non-EMV environment. Consequently, merchants are at risk if they fail to install EMV-compliant infrastructure.

- To compete with Apple Pay, Google launched a new m-payment service, Android Pay, in March 2015, allowing consumers to use an Android phone to pay for goods and services at POS terminals using contactless technology. Following the launch of Android Pay, South Korean company Samsung Electronics launched Samsung Pay in September 2015. Other competitors entering the m-payment market are CurrentC and Chase Pay. These initiatives are expected to advance the development of m-payment in the US.

- In September 2015, the US government announced plans to accept Apple Pay payments for social security benefits, national park admissions and other similar services. The deal will enable social security and veterans' benefits recipients to add government-issued debit cards to Apple Pay. As nearly 50% of the population benefits from some form of federal welfare scheme, this initiative will drive m-payments in the country. The US government's endorsement of Apple Pay is expected to enhance the contactless payment infrastructure over the forecast period (2015–2019).
