Transactions on PESONet and InstaPay continue to climb.
As of July 2022, state-run pension payments, increased e-money use, and Internet banking contributed to the expansion of PESONet and InstaPay transactions.
The value of transactions under PESONet, which includes high-value transactions, increased by 47% year over year as of July to PHP3.46 trillion, according to information released on Thursday by the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP).
It stated that transactions increased by 22% yearly to roughly 48 million.
According to the BSP, the increase in PESONet transactions was caused by pension fund disbursements enabled by the Development Bank of the Philippines (DBP), which began in September 2020.
From January to July 2022, “the disbursements were done twice a month with an average disbursement volume of 1.5 million transactions valued at PHP6.8 billion,” it stated.
During the same time frame, InstaPay transaction volume increased by 25% to over 300 million, and value increased by 37% year over year to PHP1.91 trillion.
The broad use of Internet banking and e-money transactions for domestic remittances, e-commerce, bill payments, and other urgent low-value payments, according to the BSP, is responsible for this growth.
The National Retail Payment System (NRPS), an initiative of the central bank that encourages online financial transactions, includes two automated clearing houses: PESONet and InstaPay.
By 2023, the BSP wants at least 50% of all financial transactions to be conducted digitally nationwide.
