Register for CMSPI's Monthly Townhall
CMSPI’s Monthly Townhall is a monthly virtual forum focused on payments acceptance - created to discuss key challenges, trends & opportunities with the backdrop of CMSPI’s data & analytics.
The Federal Reserve’s October 2022 clarification has created a flurry of activity in the payments industry. CMSPI has analyzed the document to understand what it means for merchants, the steps to take in order to benefit from the opportunity, and how CMSPI can help quantify the value PINless routing can bring to your business.
History tells us that routing opportunities are not guaranteed. Traditional payments players have an incentive to protect volumes and their own profitability. Our latest resources examine current obstacles limiting savings on transaction fees.

For many businesses across the world, network fees are just a jumble of often-unintelligible words that clutter every payments invoice.

Merchants must ensure they are partnered with providers that offer comprehensive debit routing tools. If your partner can’t process or route PINless transactions, negotiation levers may be viewed as less credible. CMSPI is actively tracking PINless enablement to know which payment partners are ready.
The PINless opportunity isn’t a matter of routing everything to PINless, but rather of opening of additional negotiable volume to merchants. You must first understand the negotiating power at hand. CMSPI's analytical tools can quickly determine your PINless ROI.
Merchants not only need to navigate the capabilities of their providers and limitations from the networks, but also develop new benchmarks and strategies in newly opened debit routing environments. CMSPI's data insights include benchmarking costs to determine if your business is getting the best rates.
