For years, the payments industry has anticipated explosive growth from alternative payment methods like prepaid, P2P and dual-function cards, and new technologies like chip cards and mobile. Now, as the card industry begins to recover from two years of damage control, a few of these contenders have begun to deliver on the promise, while others remain on the strategy shelf.
- What are the best practices and proven techniques to drive adoption of new payments technologies?
- How can you avoid cannibalizing existing traditional portfolios and instead capture new payment wallet share and profit?
- How should you leverage the smartphone takeover and the imminent tablet revolution?
This fast-moving panel will share their experience in targeting techniques, adoption incentives, channel strategies, lighthouse tactics, marketing methods and organization approaches. Learn what works—and equally importantly—what doesn’t—to accelerate adoption of new payments technologies and products.
This panel discussion will focus on the current venture investment environment in payments companies, including valuations and valuation drivers, what is and is not in favor, and recent high-profile deals.
This session will begin with an overview of the P2P payments landscape, giving you an idea of the scope of the market, recent trends and innovations in the field. Youll also hear about the non-bank P2P players, and what their impact has been. Youll then have an opportunity to hear examples of how consumers are currently using bank-centric P2P payment services and ways to expand the use of P2P through new channels(such as small business) and new functionalities (such as cross border payments.)
Payment products that once existed only in Brick and Mortar and more recently online are now making themselves accessible via a wide array of mobile devices. At the same time, those who have long relied on mobile phones to make crucial financial transactions, either in the developed world (e.g. US, Europe) or in emerging economies, will gain access to new features and services not available to them before. These trends collectively herald a new age for companies who have long been in the payments business, and now have an additional opportunity for growth. In this presentation, you’ll hear:
- What types of payment services, especially for the Money Transfer industry are in demand among consumers that translate well to mobilization
- How mobile apps will push growth for traditional payment players
- Promising mobile partnerships and technologies that are on the horizon

Mobile wallets present new opportunities for financial institutions (FIs). The mid-September roll out of Google Wallet showed that mobile payments are a reality, revolutionizing how consumers manage their finances, make purchasing decisions and pay for transactions. Planning for this change will help position FIs for success in mobile commerce. With the right mix of consumer access and merchant acceptance, mobile payments will quickly become the popular way to transact business. FIs of all sizes must be ready. In this session, attendees will learn:--What mobile wallets mean to FIs--Why FIs should look at mobile commerce as an opportunity rather than threat--Solutions and next steps to getting mobile commerce up and running--How to develop a long-term strategy; how to market and promote payment products; and more
This new digital currency has been getting some attention lately. But what makes it different from all the other digital currencies out there? Is it a threat to the dollar? Is it a threat to banks? What are the risks? Can this reduce costs? The mechanics of a bitcoin payment are very different from credit cards and debit cards, so all new software is needed to process them. Is it worthwhile? Does it make sense for some businesses and not for others? How does it work with mobile payments? This session will discuss the processing of bitcoin payments, as well as the benefits and risks involved.
As recently as ten years ago, nearly all of a consumer's card and banking relationships, i.e. debit/credit/checking accounts, were established exclusively with traditional retail depositories. Developments in technology and the ability to rent a BIN from a licensed bank have led to an influx of third-party entities, including phone companies (ISIS), prepaid card program managers (Green Dot, NetSpend), Software companies (Google Wallet, Square), retailers and decoupled debit providers (NPCA), that are disaggregating the traditional banks and taking ownership of the consumer financial services relationship. The presentation will outline the trends underlying this thesis as well as outline what this means for banks and companies throughout the payments ecosystem.
