About the Project


Hong Kong has experienced significant growth in electronic payment (e-payment) methods over the past decade. With the rapid advancement of technology and increasing demand for convenience, e-payment solutions have become increasingly popular among businesses and consumers in Hong Kong.

Exchange of goods is one of the core activities in a modern society. In order to successfully exchange goods, money was created and used. Consumption is a prerequisite of a country or city’s GDP while payment is a significant part of a complete consumption. There is no denying the prevalence of payment in people’s daily lives. With the rise of e-payment tools and platforms in Hong Kong, more options are provided to users. The variety of e-payment is an issue that needs more attention and study.
