    Control is an interesting thing. Customers already have it, thanks to many resources available: such as comparison and customer review sites. What do merchants have to support their payment processes and give them choice? They contract with a processor, and they are stuck with it until the next better priced solution comes along. Not anymore, merchants can now take total control of their payment processing. Payment Orchestration allows the merchant to have as many payment partners and create rules to ensure the best service is used to process transactions. You can integrate as many processors and acquirers as you need, with a single reconciliation front end to give ultimate control on how and where a transaction is processed and more importantly at what cost. Let us show you how Axerve helps its merchants take total control over their payments – allowing merchants to give their customers the best buying experience.

    Payment outages will happen. We will not know how and when, but they will happen. How we design and operate in the payment's ecosystem is critical to minimising the impact to customers and maintain trust in our payment services. As the physical wallet is replaced with the digital wallet, customers will be solely reliant on our payment systems to access funds anytime, anywhere. Failure to provide this service at any given time can have a significant impact on people’s lives. This session will cover key learnings from major industry outages, regulatory view on operational resilience and top tips for minimising the catastrophic impact from a system outage.  
  1. 30 mins
    Deep dive into the new technologies that are advancing the innovation of payment mechanisms, discuss how regulation has been crucial in driving change in the payments space, consider the current need for regulatory and standardisation direction and analyse how payment infrastructure is expected to change in the next 10 years.
