The new pandemic might change public payment habits, BIS Bulletins reported. Currently, the new pandemic has aroused unprecedented public concern about the spread of COVID-19 virus through cash. This concern could accelerate the digital payment revolution and popularization around the world and push global central banks to adjust their digital currency strategies.
It is understood that there has been a huge increase in the average number of searches relevant words like “coronavirus cash” on Google in the past 30 days. Several central banks have taken actions and measures to ease those concerns. The bank of Canada (BoC) has demanded the retailer to stop receiving cash. The Louvre museum in Paris has declared a ban on the use of cash during the pandemic. And India, Indonesia, and other countries have increased input in contactless payments.
In an effort to reduce the impact of a pandemic on people's daily lives, the world's leading payment platform Alipay has announced to build a one-stop digital lifestyle platform. As Alipay's strategic partner, Telpo has launched a series of digital devices to support the digital lifestyle platform. In virtue of online shopping + contactless delivery + offline consumption methods, Alipay and Telpo could build a multi-scene and new retail consumption scene, which will help merchants to create online and offline consumption channels, realize contactless payment and reduce infection risk.
