With the popularization of financial technology innovation and mobile technology, traditional payment methods have gradually shifted to digital payments using smartphones.
This trend has also entered domestic colleges and universities, and mobile payments have been introduced to campuses one after another. The Vice President for Administrative Affairs Dr. Shi-Feng Chuang explained that Tamkang has been launching electronic transactions for many years and is the first to launch the service of the Ministry of the Interior Certification Authority (MOICA) to apply and purchase transcripts. Applicants only need to use MOICA and apply for the transcript through the ibon kiosks at 7-11 convenient stores. After confirming identity, amount of items, delivery location, and making the payment, individuals may receive the transcript within 2 to 5 working days. Since the 2019 academic year, Tamkang cooperated with the EasyCard Company and Hua Nan Bank Tamsui Branch to promote small amount payment mechanism, and swimming pool admission fees may be paid through the EasyCard; Tamkang is responding to the Ministry of Education’s “Colleges and Universities Mobile Payment Promotion Plan,” by continuing to integrate the existing payment methods, building the “Tamkang University Smart Payment Platform” (TKU Smart Pay), and cooperating with LINE Pay, Taiwan Pay, Easy Pay, and Jkos Mobile Payment to satisfy the needs of diversified payment methods for faculties and students, to achieve a smart and cashless campus.
Tamkang’s smart payment platform is characterized by its information system and payment platform developed by the university, which can easily be incorporated into the university’s various locations. After discussing cooperation with the payment industry, the two parties communicate in the form of Web Services and interface information via Web API. In addition to reducing the duplication of data creation, Tamkang can also control the provision of data; when the user pays by mobile payment, the payment provider will only receive the payment slip number and fee, and will not know the user’s background information so all user’s personal information and privacies are well secured.
