PASA virtually hosted its 4th International Payments Conference (PIPC) in September 2021. Set over three mornings and 9 sessions, the conference explored the rapidly altering and transforming payments ecosystem. The plenary and multi-track sessions highlighted future challenges and opportunities in the world of payments, featuring 37 local and international thought leaders.

PIPC2021 Report

This paper positions the work of the mavericks, mobilisers and mentors that set out to thoroughly understand and solve some of the pain points in the debit order sphere. The journey thus far required full transparency and accountability of various stakeholders as well as a holistic, integrated and cross-sectoral approach. The outcomes and impact of these changemakers lead to the creation and implementation of agile and responsive practices that consistently mitigate criminal activities while minimising problematic consumer behaviour.

PASA – Combatting Debit Order Abuse

Early in 2019 PASA and BankservAfrica, together with the assistance of PwC, collaborated to design a study tour to India, Thailand, China and Singapore to form a deeper understanding of how these countries approached and implemented advanced, real-time payments infrastructure and eco-systems. The purpose of the tour was to enable the industry to develop a shared understanding of the case for change and the potential benefits that could be realised for South Africa. This report represents the collective voice of the delegates on the tour, and the intention of this report is to inform the broader South African payments stakeholder group and leadership of the findings and potential this has for South Africa.
