Anything from a few basis points to over 5% gets shaved off almost every payment, sometimes twice. All of these networks from ACH to VisaNET, SWIFT to RTGS, and even SEPA take a small bite. FX and the acquirers are where the vast majority of the money goes.

In this session, John will walk through the payments landscape from acquiring to disbursements, PSPs to netting and settlement. And of course, there’ll even be a sprinkling of BlockChain for the hipsters.
