Acquiring Industry at TRANSACT 17 in Vegas: Where Else?

Posted by Brandes Elitch on Tue, May 23, 2017 @ 02:19 PM

For 25 years, the Electronic Transactions Association has been the trade association for the credit card acquiring industry — the industry that enables merchants to take credit and debit cards as payment for goods and services. Today, it has branched out and embraced all kinds of payments, not just card based ones.

There are 500+ member companies in the ETA and their big annual tradeshow is called TRANSACT. It is a really big show: over 4,000 attendees, an exhibit hall with over 200 exhibits (including 50 first time exhibitors) as well as keynote presentations and panels, and 40 educational sessions and seminars. It is a safe bet that anyone who is anyone in the acquiring industry was at the show.

The Next Big Thing In the Auto Industry

Posted by Brandes Elitch on Thu, Mar 19, 2015 @ 11:00 AM

As I discussed in my last post, in the 1980s when Roger Smith was CEO of General Motors and it was the largest industrial enterprise in the world, he made decisions so disastrous they contributed directly to the firm’s bankruptcy and will be studied in business schools for years to come.

ISOs: Choosing a Check Services Provider

Posted by Brandon Weaver on Mon, Mar 17, 2014 @ 10:00 AM

Since an ISO’s goal is to maximize revenue, it’s in his or her best interest to have check services in his portfolio. But choosing the appropriate provider encompasses many factors: Company reputation, system reliability and compatibility, and ongoing support. Often times, a Retail Systems Support (RSS) department is an ISO’s point of contact at a check service provider. The RSS team works very closely with ISOs and merchants alike, recommending specific service types, setting up equipment in-store, and troubleshooting technical issues that may arise. To help prepare ISOs in learning what the relationship is like selling check services with a provider, a member of CrossCheck’s RSS department was interviewed.
