Payments In The Platform Economy

Today we are confronted by a major macroeconomic shift from products to platforms. We see a big change in business practices with high impact on our traditional value chains and a new view on ‘the value of our assets’. Both the physical and digital worlds are merging as new ways of interacting and transacting between businesses and people emerge. A challenging ‘repositioning’ of payments within the transaction space will be needed. This new way of interacting between producers and consumers will be much more complex as we also will use the latest technologies, algorithms, data-management, etc. The actual payment will become an aggregation of precise cost, settled at various moments between players in the new value chain. Platforms will become the key aggregators in this new transaction space. They could be banks or non-banks.

Our goal with the Australian Payment Summit is to focus on innovation and to share insights and ideas from the experts involved in shaping this new world of payments. Have a look at our detailed program including plenary and track sessions. Our program is a living document and we continuously work on offering the best content with relevant topics, the right experts as speakers and creating room for relevant debates.   Register today and don’t miss out on an excellent program!
