Traditionally, merchant expansion into international markets has been fraught with challenges from the payments side. The multitude of contracting needs and technical integrations required, combined with wide variations in payment habits and local market expectations often combined to prevent ISOs, Acquirers and merchants from expanding their CNP payments offering beyond international cards, and perhaps one or two of the "mainstream alternative” payment types. The result has been lost customers, lower conversion rates, and foregone opportunities.
This, however, is changing. As North American merchants are pushing their payment providers to “follow them” into European, Latin American and Asian markets, the payments industry has responded with new technology, new services and new solutions that go a long way toward reducing the complexity, time-to-market and effort required for payment providers to “go international.” This presentation will look at the ways these international payment challenges are being overcome by globally-focused industry players, and will spark discussion regarding the right strategy for following merchants to new markets quickly, cost-effectively, and successfully.
