Leveraging the right partnerships to stay ahead of the curve

Even amidst a less-than-ideal economic situation, the payments space is ever-changing, being constantly shaped by factors such as consumer choice and industry developments. In this context, knowing ‘who is who’ in the payments landscape is essential for businesses that want to stay ahead of the curve.

In 2024, the industry is at a juncture point of sorts, and the keyword that is anticipated to define payments this year is ‘partnership’.
