  • The e-payments landscape. Today’s payment landscape, more than ever before,  is a complex and dynamic market that  is continuing to evolve, change and grow within traditional methods such as paper instruments and payment cards as well by adding new electronic and alternative payments. These changes to the payment market can be seen within both customer present (CP) and customer-not-present (CNP) transactions.
  • While cash may be king, as of 2008 only 36.5 percent of consumer payments in the US came via paper instruments, mainly cash and checks, and 52.9 percent of monthly consumer payments were transacted with a payment card.  Payment cards are an integral part of the US payment market and have become ubiquitous when you consider the penetration rates of credit and debit cards combined. In the 1990’s the concept of payment cards would have been synonymous with credit cards, but in today’s payment market that is not the case. Payment cards now account for credit cards, debit cards, gift cards, virtual cards and payroll cards to name only a few. In 2008 more US consumers had debit cards than credit cards, 80.2 and 78.3 percent respectively. US consumers now use debit cards more often than cash, checks or credit cards individually.
  • Taking payments online doesn't mean you are relieved of your obligations for collecting and paying taxes or with complying with domestic and international laws for commerce. As an eCommerce professional you need to make sure you understand what the big picture requirements are in these areas to ensure you can properly review and guide your company away from risk from fines and fees associated with not being in compliance.
