Transformation of the payment industry

After many decades of things being mostly the same, the payment industry is undergoing a massive transformation as processes and data are digitized, Fintechs challenge the incumbent methods of operation, banks open up their interfaces for 3rd parties, and the market drives a need for secure, real-time commerce from anywhere to anywhere.

This book aims to be a source of truth that covers the breadth of the payment industry, to provide those of you starting in the payment industry with an overview of how payments work, the various standards that exist and how they interact, and the main stakeholders you may come across.

For those who have been working in payments for many years, this book will help fill in some of the gaps in your knowledge, or act as a reference for the more esoteric details. For those embarking on the Fintech journey looking to disrupt the status-quo, this book will help you understand the status-quo and hopefully make it easier for you to spot where things could change for a more exciting payments industry.
