The Paypers unveils its 2017 Online Payments and Ecommerce Market Guide

Read into the latest insights and trends of the global ecommerce industry in The Paypers newly released Online Payments and Ecommerce Market Guide 2017. This 8th edition of the annual report is an essential handbook for those who are trying to understand how the ecommerce and payments market is developing this year.

Technological development and ever-evolving consumer demands are driving faster payments and improving omnichannel capabilities within the global ecommerce market. This latest edition of The Paypers Online Payments and Ecommerce Market Guide 2017 reviews the key technological, regulatory, and international topics within the industry. Additionally, the report offers a comprehensive overview of the Payment Service Provider (PSP) landscape, including industry mapping and a summary of developments in digital payments.

Today’s ecommerce merchants must cope with a complex set of challenges. Consumers now expect to be able to make payments across channels at any time, with any device, and where ever they may be. Meanwhile, new regulatory measures are constantly being implemented, creating a strain on the payment landscape. Successful merchants must be capable of balancing security and convenience, and should aim to provide omnichannel payments across a range of markets. Not surprisingly, payment service providers are also impacted by the shifts in the global market.

Subjects covered in this 8th edition of The Paypers OPMG include, among other things, best practices in payments, data-driven commerce and Internet of Things (IoT), ecommerce development through omnichannel, ecommerce around the globe, ecommerce marketplaces, consumer payment behaviours and the customer journey, and the link between regulations and innovation in digital transactions.
