The Future of the Payments Industry

Technology is rapidly evolving and so is the business world. Therefore, it is no surprise that credit card processing services have changed significantly in the past decade and will continue to do so in the coming years. While nobody can predict with certainty what will happen to payment processing in the future, we can examine the latest trends and see in which direction the industry is going in.

Mobile Payments Will Continue to Grow

We all know that mobile devices like smartphones and tablets are getting increasingly popular among consumers. The world of electronic commerce, where transactions would occur almost exclusively on PCs is now being changed forever. Consumers increasingly use their mobile device to make an online purchase and can either have the item shipped to their home, or pick it up from a retail location.

But mobile devices can now be used for face-to-face commerce as well. Some credit card processing services have created apps and hardware devices that allow merchants, big and small, to accept credit card payments on a mobile device. The customer can now simply swipe their card through an attachment to a smartphone or tablet in order to pay for their purchase. This can be very beneficial for certain categories of businesses, such as street vendors, who often lack the infrastructure to process credit card payments and rely exclusively on cash.

New Payment Processors Will Emerge

Previously, merchant accounts issued by a financial institution were the only way for a business to accept payment cards. While this may have been a suitable option for mid-sized and larger businesses, smaller merchants with lower sales volumes were often finding it difficult to find a way to accept credit cards.

With the arrival or various payment processing service providers, this has changed significantly in the past few years. Now, anyone who wants to accept credit cards, either online or at a physical location, can do so with minimal up-front costs and without going through a lengthy and complicated approval process.

New payment processors, which offer features similar to regular merchant accounts, are now rapidly growing in popularity. They bring innovative solutions to the industry, such as giving shoppers the ability to make payments simply by tapping their smartphone on a receiver, as well as further blurring the line between regular commerce and e-commerce by offering mobile wallets.



It took me a while to decide who I wanted to settle with to handle all of my credit card transactions because every company wants to make it sound like they're offering you the best rates. was able compare and beat all of the other offers I received. They were also able to provide me the fairest price on my EMV-compliant terminal. My sales representative and the support team were there to assist every step of the way. Ultimately, I'm looking forward to a long term relationship with this company.

The service was very professional, my sales person (Steven B.) was very well versed in the product and most helpful in getting our company set up to accept credit cards via my cell phone. Their rates are some of the lowest on the market and their service is unparalleled. I will recommend them to anyone requiring a credit card processing service.

I called indecisive about getting a device, but speaking to your Sales Consultant completely settled me. He was very professional, knowledgeable and patiently walked me through the process. He always responded to my voicemails and answered all my questions. After I received my merchandise, he called following up to ensure that I had received it. Customer service I would say is 5 stars. Stellar! Thanks Credit Card Processing, I will definitely recommend you.
