Are you watching the world grow more connected before your eyes? It’s only natural that online merchants see this growth as an opportunity. Increasingly, it is becoming vitally important that online merchants be fully prepared to sell not only “locally” but also to reach into cross-border commerce. PYMNTS.com has been studying factors that separate the most successful cross-border merchants from the rest of the pack.

Survey Says: U.S. Consumers & Businesses Alike Demand Pragmatic Fintech Solutions to Ease Their Financial Woes
Ringing in the holidays, means nearing the end of year, and at Credorax we decided to take a moment to reflect on the major transformation the fintech industry experienced in 2016.

Editor’s note: Prior to Money20/20 2016 in Las Vegas, we took the opportunity to speak to Rod Katzfey, our Vice President of Sales & Business Development of North America, about mobile payments from the perspective of American business.
What is your opinion of the various mobile payment options available today?

Between the technological advancements developed over the past few years both on the card-not-present and card-present side, such as mPOS, in-app payments, NFC/contactless, combined with the 800-pound gorillas – Apple Pay & Samsung Pay – snatching up partnership deals with retailers and banks across the globe, it appears that mobile has reached a turning point. But I truly believe we are still in the hype vs. reality stage and still awaiting to be embraced wholeheartedly by consumers.
