In the past five years, the world of payments has changed beyond recognition. Where banks once monopolized the cross border payments, associated fees and foreign exchange rates, a new market has begun to evolve. This has opened the door to both new and established e-commerce businesses driven to disrupt the banks once iron grip, radically changing the market place from a revenue based business to a customer focused market.


Customers have been driven away from the large banks 

The recent introduction of PSD (Payment Service Directive)  and PSD2, increase in PSPs, payment gateways, innovative Fin-tech and well established e-commerce providers has driven customers away from the large banks and towards new, specialised boutique payment providers.


Regaining consumer trust and understanding what appeals to customers

Banks have been predominantly slow to react. This is due to the costs of upgrading systems, updating and streamlining old and antiquated regulatory and compliance processes. Regaining consumer trust and most of all understanding what appeals to customers both from a product and loyalty standpoint has been difficult for large financial service institutions to fully grasp and integrate.
