THURSDAY, MAY 9th, 2019

Key Topics for Discussion:


Debit Acceptance

We look at how merchants can drive value from their debit arrangements by evaluating four key areas; information, innovation, smart routing and incentives.

Rising Card Fees - What Next For Merchants?

Network fees are on the rise, we will present a study that shows how this has impacted the merchant community, and how it has eroded the benefits of the Durbin amendment.

Best Practices and Optimization Techniques

Opening up our consultants playbook, we look at how merchants can optimize their card processing arrangements, including interchange, and what they should be doing to future-proof.

The card industry is changing rapidly – fees are increasing, savings from regulation are eroding fast, product offerings are expanding, and new products are entering the market. These changes are affecting merchants, but the merchant community’s voice is often not heard. The MCAF is a platform for merchants to have their say and ensure they remain at the forefront of payments.
