Getting to a unified digital payment system for Singapore

Nets – the leading payment solutions provider – recently announced that it would launch new payment modes across all of its 100,000 acceptance points in Singapore by mid-2018. What does this mean for Singapore’s quest for a unified payments system? Japnit Singh, Deputy Chief Executive Officer at Spire Research and Consulting shared his insights, published on Today Online’s news portal.

Japnit opined that the infrastructure laid out by Nets for a unified point-of-sales terminal is a big step forward. But what was needed was an open platform with other payment companies able to join, to ensure competition. This is seen in the telco industry where infrastructure sharing is required.

The new payment modes that Nets will implement include an app storing a digital version of Automated-teller machine (ATM) cards, new contactless cards along with mobile payments through Quick Response (QR) codes.

It remains to be seen if transaction fees will be hiked. If so, merchants will have to decide if they are willing to pay more per transaction in order to broaden their potential customer base in a country that is moving towards cashlessness.

Will compost turn out to be the magic mineral for African agriculture?

Morocco has 75 per cent of the global reserves. After an 800 per cent price hike in 2008, phosphate rock has become costly. An alternative option is compost. Compost not only provides phosphorous and other nutrients but can also restore the soil
