The Under-Billed Market: It's The Little Payments That Mean A Lot


An opportunity market for migrating small value, service-related consumer-to-business payments from checks and cash to electronic payment forms is quickly emerging in the United States, spurred on by technology that supports inexpensive, convenient card acceptance devices. On the other side of this market are the billions of regular bill payments that take place on the edges of consumers’ lives.
