From mobile payment options at your favorite eateries to instant peer-to-peer (P2P) payments with friends, the advances in financial technology are impacting how consumers and businesses interact with one another. But navigating through the latest payment options, FinTech trends and tech tools impacting the customer experience doesn’t have to feel overwhelming.
We’ve compiled the top FinTech need-to-knows curated from the leading FinTech companies in the space into an infographic which summarizes how “FinTech Innovation is All Around Us.” Findings are from FinTech players including Cardlytics, Cox, Equifax, First Data, Fiserv, InComm, NCR, TSYS and more!
The infographic includes research on three key areas: the latest means for prepaid and payment options, how technology is impacting the evolving consumer experience and consumer spending trends across three generations.
