Event summary:
Card Acquiring is facing a wide range of challenges, at the same time as progress is being made in establishing a true SEPA. The ongoing economic crisis increases the need to rely on, and further develop such resilient revenue sources, while several obstacles still impede this development. While there is a strong political drive to establish a viable SCF scheme, many industry actors are still looking for a more convincing economic rationale.

Scheme compliance, standardization, interchange fee and migration deadline issues, all add to the complexity of developing viable, profitable business models in Acquiring.

While new solutions are being sought for these concerns, there are also many new developments providing customers more choices in their payment methods. E-payments, M-payments, contactless cards – innovation is unstoppable and the Acquiring business must embrace it.

Our speakers will discuss these issues and share their insights to help answer the question whether European development will follow the US model or provide its own unique solutions.

Register by Friday, 27th November for the rock-bottom special promotional price sponsored by one of our proud partners! (this offer is valid for practitioners only and not for solution providers)
