2014 has been a year of incredible change for the payments industry. Apple entered the game with ApplePay; eBay and PayPal broke up; Chase, Vantiv and FirstData each acquired some major companies and deals; EMV and iBeacons began to grow; Alibaba’s Alipay positioned itself to go global; Amazon continued to experiment and expand; Bitcoin faded in value; and tokenization cemented itself as a solution to bring security, identity and commerce together.
Karen Webster, CEO of PYMNTS.com, covers all of that and more in her article “The Ten Things That Changed Payments in 2014” in the publication’s year-end eBook.
