Everyone says the payments industry will change more in the next 5 years than the last 25. I'm a believer. And a skeptic. Payments are complicated. Innovation can be very hard.
I'm taking a couple of months for this Payments Innovation Road Trip to meet with POS system vendors, processors, payment service providers, MNOs, card brands, retailers, and more. Then I'll put it on the Payments Innovation Map.
Keep me company on the ride.

Showrooming is Very Real - Just Ask Best Buy
A new Harris poll reveals just how serious showrooming has become for Best Buy in particular. Walmart and Target aren't immune.
