Merchant Acquiring Conference 2022

After three years away, we are very pleased to announce that our Merchant Acceptance Conference is back! We will be running the event on the 1st December 2022 at Glazier’s Hall in central London.


It’s a great event to find out more about what’s going on in payments innovation and to network with senior colleagues from across the payments industry.


We will be covering two major topics at the event:

  1. Marketplaces: We are going to explore how to take, hold and disburse funds. How to manage the European compliance landscape, and some of the complexities which come along with merchants’ building their own marketplace solutions
  2. BNPL: While the shine may have come off BNPL from an investor perspective we still regard BNPL as one of the most significant shifts in the payments market in recent years. We’ll explore how BNPL platform providers are emerging, and how traditional pay later services are responding to the arrival of instant onboarding offers.


The conference will, as ever, be content rich, rather than focussing on lights and smoke machines. It is designed to provide new insights for seasoned payments professional. The speakers do not pay for their slots, and PSE remains strictly independent.


The following companies are already confirmed as speakers:

  • Bird & Bird: are going to outline some of the current and future regulatory challenges in running marketplaces in Europe
  • Chargeafter: will talk about the emergence of BNPL platforms
  • Endava: are going to outline some of the issues associated with building the technology backbone for marketplaces
  • NomuPay: who are going to discuss the challenges in building a new enterprise disbursement network for marketplaces
  • MangoPay: will be looking at how to deliver an innovative full stack offering to the merchant marketplace community
  • Payrails: who are going to talk about managing complex funds flows within marketplaces
  • PSE: We will be discussing our BNPL research and the mystery shops we have recently carried out across Europe
