After a number of conversations recently with retailers and payments providers it’s become glaringly apparent that fintech will re-write the payments landscape, both in terms of how, when and where payments are made and in terms of who is now handling the payment.
There is no doubt that fintech is already making massive inroads into the consumer retail space and given the pace of change no-one involved in the industry can any longer afford to take a “wait and see” approach. It is imperative to keep up to date with the developments which will really drive change – from mobile wallets to the blockchain – as well as to seek partnerships with the innovative new players in the game.
This is just one of the many topics we’ll be discussing at the All Payments Expo in New Orleans in March. I’m looking forward to opening up the floor and hearing what everyone has to say!
