September overview: anything else beside PSD2?

September overview: anything else beside PSD2?

Time once again for another monthly news recap. The most important day of September for any merchant doing business in Europe was September 14th, as that was day when PSD2 came into force. However, a number of countries have delayed its implementation: Merchant Payments Ecosystem provides an overview of this. Most important to note: carrier billing is exempt from PSD2.

For our own content, last month was quite packed. Check out how carrier billing is doing in Asia, what PSD2 SCA means for merchants in Europe, how promotions help increase bundling deals’ performance and finally, why telcos should launch payments for their prepaid subscribers.

Looking ahead to October, we are going to DCX Expo and the Global DCB Summit. Get in touch if you want to meet up. On the research side, we are close to publishing our Middle Eastern & North African market report, so make sure to check back on the blog next week.
