Scope of the report:

  • To promote electronic payments in the country, on August 5, 2019 the Federal Reserve Board announced that the country's federal reserve banks will develop a new instant payment system called FedNow. The new payment system will have a wider presence than others and will allow banks of every size in the country to provide instant payment services to their customers. The service will be available to both individuals and businesses and will allow a range of payments, including person-to-person, business-to-business, business-to-customer, customer-to-business, and government-to-person. The new payment system will operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year, and the maximum limit will be $25,000 per transaction. It is likely to be launched in 2023 or 2024. The US already has two instant payment solutions in place: Zelle and Real-Time Payments (RTP). However, neither has universal penetration in the market or interoperability with one another.
  • The proliferation of challenger banks will drive competition in the banking space, thus helping to boost debit card holding. In August 2019, new challenger bank Zenus Bank commenced its operations after receiving approval from the US regulatory authorities. Customers receive a digital version of a Visa or Mastercard debit card within 15 minutes of account opening. Germany-based digital bank N26 had 250,000 customers as of January 2020, after commencing its operations in the US from August 2019.
  • While US consumers have traditionally been credit card-reliant, the pandemic is changing consumer spending behavior as recession looms and unemployment grows. According to Visa, its credit card volumes declined by 21% in May 2020 year on year. The shift in consumer spending could drive away $100bn annually from credit cards to debit cards over time as per Visa. In May 2020, JPMorgan Chase revealed credit card spending fell by 40% during March and early April compared to 2019.
