- To encourage card acceptance among merchants, the Bank of Israel has been cutting interchange fee rates. It reduced the cap on debit card interchange fees from 0.7% to 0.3% effective from April 2016. In January 2018 it confirmed future rate reductions. The debit card interchange fee will be reduced in a phased manner to reach 0.25% by 2023, while charge card interchange fees will be reduced from 0.7% to 0.5% by 2023.

- To promote credit cards and bring more competition and investment into the market, Strum Law was passed in January 2017. The law obligates the country's two largest banks, Bank Leumi and Bank Hapoalim, to divest their credit card businesses, Leumi Card and Isracard respectively, by the end of January 2020. The law also prohibits domestic banks and non-bank companies from purchasing the divested card businesses, thus paving the way for foreign companies to enter the Israeli pay-later market.

- In order to reduce cash dependency in the country, the Israeli government is imposing restrictions on cash transactions between both individuals and businesses. Effective from January 2019, cash transactions will be restricted to ILS11,000 (USD3,159.10) for business deals and ILS50,000 (USD14,359.57) between individuals. The government plans to reduce the limit to ILS6,000 (USD1,723.15) for businesses and ILS15,000 (USD4,307.87) for individuals by 2020. The Bank of Israel will also impose restrictions on cheques to ILS10,000 (USD2,871.91) effective from July 2019.
