What to Expect From the Payment Industry In the Next Decade

Forms of payment have always reflected the technological levels and the social ideals of the societies that they were used in. For centuries, precious metals were used as currency. As time went on and as ideas regarding currency changed, the way that financial transactions were made changed as well. Instead of changing precious metals for commodities, payment notes were created that were backed by gold or silver.

Recent changes in payment technologies have made it so that in many instances when an individual purchases a product, the only thing that they exchange with the seller is information. These types of transactions are done via credit cards and with the use of merchant accounts. Many wonder, as society progresses and as technology continues to grow, what might be some of the payment technologies of the future.

MasterCard, a respected name in the world of credit card processing, began research just about a decade ago into replacing credit cards with the ADS chip. The idea was that this chip would be implanted in the skin of its owner. It would then allow people to use their hands to complete the types of transactions that they were previously only able to complete using credit cards. There has been very little movement forward on this idea, but since the technology exists, it is likely that it will eventually be implemented.

Cell phones and other hand-held devices are beginning to figure prominently in financial interactions. A good example of this is the actions being taken by Target to remove the point of sales devices from their stores. Part of their plan to do this includes allowing customers to purchase the items that they want directly from the aisle that they are in. By simply scanning the QR code using the handheld devices, a customer in the future will be able to purchase the product and immediately have it shipped to them. This would make credit card processing all but obsolete.

Undoubtedly, the future of credit card technology is also going to include ways for individuals to purchase the products that they want anonymously. Secret, untraceable credit card transactions appeal to many. Many simply do not want others, including those in charge of the merchant account associated with credit card processing, to know what it is that they are purchasing. As more and more pressure for this type of privacy grows, it is likely that steps will be taken to make anonymous purchases a reality.



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. CreditCardProcessing.com 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.

Linda Garner from Regali Da Forno

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.
