While issuers continue to focus on EMV at the point-of-sale (POS), payments are evolving quickly in other directions. Faster and real-time payments are dawning. Mobile-order-ahead-and-pay, buy-online-pick-up-in-store, and voice commerce are removing physical instances of in-store payments and replacing them with card-on-file payments that happen automatically in the background. Moreover, as fraud shifts from the POS to card-not-present environments, many issuers are tightening their authorization criteria and triggering high rates of false declines – a phenomenon that is quietly eroding issuer revenue in ways that many are unaware. Join us for a round-robin tour of the biggest trends in payments and what these trends mean for community banks’ card and payments franchises.
