Summary

Being able to make and receive payments is an essential facet of modern life. It is integral to the banking and finance systems, as well as touching all global citizens. In some areas, payment systems are rapidly evolving – moving swiftly from paper payment instruments, to electronic, to real-time – but in others, underdeveloped payment systems hold back economic and social development.

This book is intended to assist the reader in navigating the payments landscape. The author explores highly topical areas like the role of payment systems in enabling commerce to contribute to the development of emerging economies; the evolution of payment systems from paper instruments to computerization; the role of cryptocurrencies; and the slow decline of plastic credit and debit cards as alternative form factors are introduced.

Altogether, this book provides a comprehensive overview of the evolution of payment and offers projections for the future, encouraging readers to explore their own predictions, using the framework that the book has provided. It is vital reading for technologists, marketers, executives, and investors in the FinTech sector, as well as academics teaching business and technology courses.
