Recently Segpay was included in a story
written by CBC Radio Canada. The
reporter looked at how streaming sites like Netflix are taking cues from the
adult industry to keep people watching.
That’s right, mainstream is looking at adult to see just how they are
creating such a successful “immersive viewing experience.”
University of Toronto Associate Professor Patrick Keilty
studies business, technology and culture in the adult industry. He says adult sites and other streaming
services subject the user to “rambling and chaotic images” designed to keep
viewers browsing, something that is working and getting other industries to
replicate the same process. Keilty shared
that the adult industry has led the way in many areas such as “popularizing 3G
mobile technology to Blu-ray to broadband internet to online banner
“I would say that many of the technologies that are ubiquitous to us now are either partly developed in the pornography industry or they were embraced by that industry,” said Keilty. “It’s the very embracing of that technology that made them ubiquitous.”
Segpay was highlighted as one of a few online payment processing companies that stepped in to process payments for the adult entertainment industry filling an important need.
2020 has been named the year of “perfect vision,” so, what better
time to focus in on what’s headed our way this year? Card brand and regulatory changes are on the
horizon and we need to be ready. In Cathy’s
latest XBIZ column, she breaks down the top three areas to keep your eyes
on starting with trial offers.
“If you offer a trial of any kind, you’ll want to pay attention to this. Visa is following the lead of MasterCard, which recently rolled out updates for merchants offering free trials on products. Visa is taking it one step further with its new rules applying to both physical, and digital goods and services,” said Segpay CEO Cathy Beardsley.
Cathy also shares what changes are ahead for chargebacks and
what the new regulations are that we’ll face in 2020. Please check out Cathy’s
