Merchant acquiring is an increasingly visible component of the U.S. financial services industry. It is a pivotal driver of electronic payments in e-commerce and at the point of sale. Technology advances, changing consumer buying habits, and more demanding retailer needs are bringing about new business approaches for merchant acquirers. The payments landscape is being transformed by a new cast of industry players providing emerging services such as e-commerce gateways and value-added services such as fraud management systems. Mergers and acquisitions have altered the market share position of some of the top merchant acquirers, and more market share changes are expected to occur.
Mercator Advisory Group’s research report, Merchant Acquiring’s Ecosystem: Evolving Beyond Transactions examines the current state of merchant acquiring in the U.S. market and provides a set of strategic recommendations for market participants.
“Size and scale in the payments transaction world are no longer the be-all, end-all of merchant acquiring. Instead, agile merchant services delivery and tech-savvy solutions have become differentiating competitive advantages,” comments Raymond Pucci, Associate Director of Research Services at Mercator Advisory Group and author of the report.
