Mobile payment industry is still brisk in 2019. Although the tighter oversight by the People’s Bank of China (PBOC) poses challenges to mobile payment operations, it brings new vitality. The limit of payment by scanning static barcode, which is specified in Standards for Barcode Payment Business (YF  No.296) (hereinafter referred to as No.296 Document), may be a boon for industries such as dynamic barcode display equipment and smart POS device. Opportunities in the mobile payment industry of China from 2019 to 2025 cover the following:
Near field communication (NFC) payment products: NFC payment is welcome by mobile payments users as the State launches a range of policies to encourage and guide them to use and the 5G technology is beginning to flourish. Beyound that, the No.296 Document defines a cap of RMB500 on daily payment via static barcode, which is unquestionably good news for banks to develop NFC payment products.
Pay with face: the maturing AI technology enables pay with face to be a new mobile payment option for young people in the first- and second-tier cities that set an example for the third- and fourth-tier cities to popularize this payment method. Despite being left behind a little, cities at lower levels still have immense potential to adopt the way to pay according to the standards formulated by the first-tier cities.
