Original research by The Paypers

Alongside contributions from industry leaders, the report features two desk research pieces by The Paypers. The first infographic outlines the capabilities of some of the most relevant payment orchestration platforms (POPs) – as confirmed by the companies featured in the research.

The report also includes a series of infographics focusing on marketplaces with a presence in Europe, Asia-Pacific, Middle East and Africa, North America, Latin America, or all around the globe. We further categorise them based on three target groups – B2C, B2B, and C2C – and three verticals: consumer goods and services, gig market and recruiting, and travel and hospitality.
