Too often Australian payment startups believe that by simply dropping what they have built for the Australian market will automatically apply to the USA. But there are basic Payments 101 questions such as:

– “Why are cheques the most popular payment method?

– “How is EMV implementation progressing”?

– “What is NSS?”

– “What is ACH?”

In this fireside chat we will cover these topics and more with an Australian expert just returned from the US, and who has developed and implemented major payment initiatives across 8 countries.
