PSE Merchant Acquiring Conference - 6th Dec 2022

06th December 2022, Glazier's Hall, London Bridge

After three years away, our Merchant Acquiring Conference was held on 6th December 2022 at Glazier's Hall in central London.   We covered 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 was, as ever, content rich, rather than focussing on lights and smoke machines. It was designed to provide new insights for seasoned payments professionals. The speakers do not pay for their slots, and PSE remains strictly independent.   Please find below materials presented by our speakers with some amendments to allow for wider distribution.
