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 including 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.

Join Raymond Pucci, Associate Director, Research Services, as he reviews the key issues and trends of the expanding merchant acquiring ecosystem. He outlines the challenges and implications that will help guide stakeholders on competitive advantage opportunities.

Key points of the webinar include:

  • A review of the leading U.S. merchant acquirers and key factors influencing their businesses

  • Analysis of merchants’ challenges and opportunities such as the impact of e-commerce, omnichannel, EMV transition, and security issues

  • An exploration of emerging participants within the U.S. payments infrastructure

  • Strategic recommendations for merchant acquirers and the threats and opportunities facing them
