Quarterly and Semi-Annual Statements of Retail Payment Statistics

In January 2009, MAS launched a comprehensive collection of retail payment statistics to strengthen our monitoring of Singapore's payments landscape and enhance our oversight of payment and settlement systems. Statistics such as transaction volume, transaction value, payment instruments in circulation and the number of terminals and merchants are collected from a broad spectrum of payment industry players on a quarterly and semi-annual basis. Such information will allow MAS to better monitor payment trends and implement appropriate and timely policies.
