Innovative offerings in the payment acquisition space are flourishing. The World Payments Report 2013 from Capgemini and RBS explores the impact of these on the payments value chain, with examples including innovative B2B business models such as SWIFT, Syncada, Odette (in the Automotive industry), as well as alternative C2B models from Amazon Coins, Square and Googlewallet. These and other models are driving strong growth in m- and e-payments and prepaid cards, helping spur the landscape towards digital payments. Many regulatory initiatives are also being seen in this area, but the impact is not necessarily the same for all types of PSPs and across all regions. What effect will this have on the market?
