Creatively marketing and selling new products and services presents a daily challenge in the payments industry. Priority Payment Systems is hosting the Priority University (U) 2017 Road Show to showcase new and expanded revenue opportunities with your merchants.
The Apriva team is excited to present at this year’s NACCU Annual Conference. As the senior director of product management at Apriva, I find the NACCU event to be a great place for professionals from a wide array of disciplines and management perspectives to meet, learn about technological advances, marketing innovations and business practices. Campus cards have their own ecosystem and innovations in implementing, operating, and expanding a successful campus card program occur every day.
Retail sales may have seen the future, according to an article by Ed McKinley in the January/February 2017 issue of Transaction Trends magazine (pages 14-17).
The article details the Amazon Go shopping experience, where you fill up your cart and walk right out the door—no checkout line needed. Purchases are scanned as you add them to your cart, and you are charged as you walk out the door.
In a recent PaymentsSource article, Kate Fitzgerald notes, “Unattended payment terminals have been among the last to see action in the U.S. migration to EMV, partly because their average low ticket values aren’t a big magnet for card fraud and operators are reluctant to plow money into new hardware in a low-margin business.”
As we get ready for 2017, our team is looking ahead to see what we can expect for the new year. This year was one that focused heavily on EMV and upgrading technology – but what will next year have in store? We talked to our team to get their top predictions on what we can expect for the coming year.
