Better late than never to talk about two important industry events that we attended last month: XBiz (Los Angeles) and InterNext (Las Vegas). As always, it was great to get out and talk with clients, partners and friends about the state of our industry and what to expect in the coming year.
Among the hot topics discussed at both events: updated merchant location rules from Visa (we’ll post about this in more detail soon) and mandatory age verification in the UK. Here’s a recent story about this, but the rules – and strategies for compliance – are still developing. SegPay is following the discussions closely and we’re here to help if you have questions.
We also heard a lot of talk about the Payment Facilitator model versus individual merchant accounts, and the need to periodically re-evaluate which works best for you. SegPay, of course, accommodates both arrangements, and we are always ready to help you make that assessment at any time.
Thanks also to everyone who attended our brunch at InterNext! We enjoyed catching up with the more than 75 guests who were nice enough to stop by. You can find us next at the Phoenix Forum (http://www.thephoenixforum.com), March 23rd-26th. We are sponsoring the Meet Market this year, so please stop by and say hi!
