Payment Systems News

To help you stay on top of developments that are changing the way we pay for goods and services, Wiser has created a payment systems news email. It is delivered to your inbox once a day and features the best articles on the topic from around the web. Down through history the way payments have been made and received has changed. Bartering gave way to currency which lasted for centuries until technology developed electronic methods of payment. These payment systems include electronic transfers and payments by debit and credit cards. Electronic payment systems have become more popular, and have moved on to contact-less payments and payment through personal mobile devices. But new technologies are changing payment systems even further. One change is the introduction of non-traditional financial institutions to control the networks. An example of this is using the technology company PayPal rather than a traditional bank. And this is moving even further with systems that remove the middleman altogether - an example of this is Bitcoin. To stay up-to-date with payment systems news and with developments in the technology and regulatory system, sign up for the free Wiser email digest.
