Episode 76 - Payments Canada - Justin Ferrabee, COO

7/19/2018
More
During the Glenbrook Payment Book Camp we make clear that national payments systems are domestic by definition. Each country has its own set of systems to effect payments. We point out that national payment systems differ in many of their details. Regulation, operating rules, governance, ownership, technology, and more are highly variable. At the same time, we also point out that major components are generally similar. An overnight, batch-based system for low-cost, low-value retail...

Episode 74 - Payment Authentication and Identity in Context - Steve Wilson, Lockstep Technologies

5/8/2018
More
Online trust requires a context-based understanding of who we transact with. Attributes about us are needed to build that trust but in many transaction contexts we share more than we need to. To pick a simple example, the law says you must be 21 to buy alcoholic beverages but our current method of proof is to show our driver's license, an unnecessary oversharing of personal information. Why show that creepy barkeep where you live when you only need to prove you were born before 1997? In...

Episode 71 - The Tech Bringing B2B Fintech to the Mid-tier Bank - Lisa Shields, FI Span

1/24/2018
More
Mid-market financial institutions have enormously strong relationships with their banking customers. But their size makes home grown IT difficult because it is simply too hard, and too costly, to meet all the B2B finance needs of their enterprise customers. The answer, of course, is deeper integration to third party software systems like SAP, Oracle, JDA and the growing set of fintech providers brining point solutions to these institutions. But that’s no simple task. These FIs often run...

Episode 70 - Real-time Cross-border Payments - Laurence Cooke of nanopay

1/19/2018
More
“Digital cash” has been a dream of the internet age for, well, almost the entire internet age. That goal requires instant payment settlement. It’s more than just sending a message that a payment has happened; it means the money has actually moved. In this wide ranging conversation with Laurence Cooke, founder and CEO of nanopay, he discusses the platform his firm has built to move value between parties in both real-time and, when necessary, offline modes. More distributed than blockchain...

Episode 68 - Digital Identity, a Mobile App, and a Blockchain - SecureKey

12/20/2017
More
Digital identity is a crisp sounding term that belies a complex layer of concepts. There is identity proofing. Identify verification. Identity assurance. Each addresses one element of the many questioned raised by digital identity. SecureKey has evolved its system to make use of a mobile app as well as a blockchain-based database that securely points to data stored by banks, utilities, and government entities, all in a zero liability arrangement. This conversation between Glenbrook’s...

Episode 67 - The Conversational User Interface - Glenbrook’s Russ Jones

12/11/2017
More
Voice is the natural user interface and the robots are coming to take it on. Enabled by high volume consumer devices like Amazon Echo, Google Home, Apple’s Siri and powered by artificial intelligence engines like Amazon’s Alexa, Google Assistant, and Apple’s Siri, we are headed toward making voice-enabled commerce and payments a common experience. Russ Jones is Glenbrook’s “tech whisperer,” an expert observer of tech evolution and how it applies to payments. Join Russ and George as they...

Episode 66 - Real Time Payments Comes to the US - Steve Ledford of TCH

11/30/2017
More
Payment innovation runs at multiple speeds. Changes in how a payment is initiated happen almost every day. Payments infrastructure change is a lot slower. But it’s happening. Nudged forward by the Federal Reserve’s Faster Payment Task Force, we are seeing the launch of the first entirely new payment system in decades. Called Real Time Payments (RTP) the new system switched its first real-time payment on November 13, 2017. Built entirely around the rich payment messaging standard ISO...

Episode 65 - Gates Foundation and Mojaloop - Kosta Peric

10/20/2017
More
Once upon a time, text messaging systems didn't interoperate. But when they did, usage skyrocketed. Many of the world's mobile money payment systems still operate within that old "walled garden" model, limiting the ability of citizens in areas like Southern Africa to send money home to family, pay utility bills, and, most important, enjoy the benefits of an national economy that is payments enabled. The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation sees today's limited interconnection of payment...

The challenges to incumbent banks are only getting bigger.

Episode 63 - Payments Come to the Browser - W3C's Ian Jacobs

9/28/2017
More
Payments standards typically operate deep within a payment system, invisible to most of us. But before long a new standard for web browsers will touch us all. Known as the Payment Request API, it is one of the newer projects of the Word Wide Web Consortium (W3C). Supported by browser builders Mozilla, Apple, Google, Microsoft, and more, this new API should simplify web payments for consumers and merchants alike. Join the W3C project leader Ian Jacobs and Glenbrook’s George Peabody as they...

Episode 60 - Where and Why Interchange Optimization Works - CardConnect

8/24/2017
More
Interchange is fundamental to open look card system economics and a mystery to many, especially to merchants who must pay it but don’t perceive any benefit from it. It’s a non-optional component of what the merchant pays to accept cards. It’s one element of the merchant discount fee. Despite the stubborn fact of it, there are ways for some merchants to make sure they pay as low a rate as possible. Join Angelo Grecco of CardConnect (now a part of First Data) and Glenbrook’s George Peabody...

Episode 59 - B2B Payments are Hot - Glenbrook's Erin McCune

8/11/2017
More
B2B payments are huge. Taken together, these supply chain payments exceed the gross domestic product. But supply chain payments remain an imperfect art. While consumers pay for one purchase at a time, a B2B payment may cover multiple invoices, each with different commercial terms. Given the amount of data about the payment that’s necessary to crisply communicate between a buyer’s accounts payable department and a seller’s receivables group, it’s no wonder paper checks are still in broad...

The Faster Payments Task Force has brought together a broad constituency with the payments industry thoroughly represented.

Episode 57 - The Bumpy Road toward Merchant EMV Adoption - Heartland

8/1/2017

Merchant adoption of EMV capability isn’t a done deal in the U.S. Glenbrook’s own estimates show that we’re only halfway there. Few people have as much insight into merchant payment acceptance and the technology that enables it as Larry Godfrey of Global Payments’ Heartland Payments business.
