Happy new year! 

The whole BayPay Forum Team would like to thank everyone for their support in making 2018 a successful year.

We were able to achieve a lot and here are a few highlights from 2018:

• With our different chapters, public, private and online events, we have been able to organize over 75 events last year. We continue trying to Live Stream most of our events so you don’t miss them if you can’t make it physically.

• Videos of our past events are now available in our Video Library section. You can now watch them at anytime, from anywhere!

• We have grown to over 17,000 executive members in the Bay Area, around the country and internationally. This means a larger network to make new connections to grow your business and personal network.

• We now have an online support 12 hours a day from 8am to 8pm Pacific Time. You can use our chat to talk directly to a member of our team if you have questions about your registration, your account, if you lost your password, if you want to volunteer or be a speaker and even if you want to cancel your membership or change your mailing list subscription. We will do our best to help you.

• We have tested new chapters and will continue to do so in 2019 with the support of other passionate executives to bring you the latest trends and the business opportunities to succeed in a thriving environment or just to network with peers. If you are interested in volunteering in a city around the globe, talk to us. It doesn't take much of your time as we do most of the work behind the scene with our technology platform. Click here to let us know.

• We want to give a voice to our members. We organize many events and are always looking for interesting topics. If you want to become a BayPay speaker in one of our upcoming events, let us know by filling this short form.

• Of course, we accept sponsorships and have revised our sponsorship options to make them cost-effective. Contact us here if you are wondering how we can help you.

• Last but not least, we have successfully launched PayKademy, the online business school to learn payments, commerce and fintech, during the Money2020 event in October in Las Vegas. A lot of attendees has shown great interest in enrolling in our course offering. We keep adding new courses for you to help train your team. Most of you are experts in your field, talk to us if you want to be a PayKademy instructor.

The BayPay Team is looking forward to seeing you at one of its events and be part of our growing network. 

We wish everyone a successful year! Feel free to forward this email to a friend or a colleague.


The BayPay Lounge

We are announcing this month The BayPay Lounge to bring more exposure to what startups and established companies are working on in 2019. 

Established banks, merchants and service providers are always looking for new startups and new ideas. Companies will have the opportunity to present their new product or service to the BayPay Community. As we have members all over the country and internationally, we decided to do this as an online only event for now. If you have a new product or service, don’t miss the opportunity, click here to learn more. Read more.

New Membership Package

We sent a survey last year to get your feedback on our memberships. The result was pretty uniform. Too many options were available and it was frustrating when you had a business membership to have to pay when an event was a reception or was online.

So we are pleased to announce that starting January 1st 2019, we will have only one Premium membership to make it easier for everyone. Premium members can now register to all our events for free automatically. You can also register for free to all our Live Streamed events and access freely all our videos from past events. As a premium member, you can also register for free some guests for any event if you want to come with someone. As we are all business, we can issue an invoice so you can expense the fee to your employer. Learn more.

What happens if you are already a Social, Business Online or other members? We have some good news for you! To thank you for your continued support, all 2018 Memberships are converted to our new Premium Membership. This means you may attend upcoming BayPay events in person, watch the Live Streaming and access our video archive – all for FREE.

Becoming a member helps you and helps us do more for you. If you are not a BayPay paying member yet, consider our 20% Discount to become a Premium Member to get all our great benefits. Apply the code HAPPY during your membership registration. Hurry, this offer is good until January 18!
