And now, to kick it off…

#5: Increase speed to revenue

Seems obvious, doesn’t it? The longer it takes you to go global with your payments program, the longer you wait to compete, capture market share and grow your business. Well, it’s time to stop waiting and recognize that SPEED WINS.

How your consumers select a payment method and the successful processing of that payment are arguably the most critical – and often the most complicated – steps in the buying and conversion cycles.

Very often you’re dealing with multiple parties – from gateways to acquirers and banks – as well as trying to keep your balance on the teeter-totter of global currency. In short, there are a lot of factors out there that can disrupt the payments process and slow your growth. To solve these challenges on a global scale, you need to streamline your cart and checkout, smooth the exchange process, mitigate risk, and support a wide range of credit cards and alternative payment methods. All of this needs to be done while keeping the user interface and overall experience seamless, consistent and easy-to-use.

It’s one thing to KNOW you need to get your global payments program up and running more quickly, but it’s quite another to KNOW HOW. To help with the “how,” follow the link below to an ePaper that reviews three crucial steps for implementing a global payment strategy and explains how companies can transform their payment process (traditionally a cost center) into a revenue generator.

To learn more about turning your payments program into a revenue stream, don’t miss our presentation – New Insights from Live Payments Data – at Money2020 on Monday, November 3, at 8:50 a.m. PST in Juniper 3 at the Aria Resort and Casino in Las Vegas.
