First there was Uber, and now, Amazon Go, a store where the customer walks in gets stuff and walks out. Commerce is undergoing a radical shift away from traditional commerce models and toward accommodating customers wherever and whenever they choose to buy. Payments are a subset of commerce and as commerce changes, the means of transacting payments are changing just as quickly. How will the revolution in commerce impact the evolution of the payments ecosystem?

Learn what’s ahead in retail payments.

We hope you can make it to this event and feel free to spread the word.
