Yandex Money’s business development director Maria Gracheva provides insight into the current status of online and mobile payments in Russia and how the market is likely to evolve. Helene Oger-Zaher from the European Banking Authority explains how the EU’s revised Payment Services Directive will bring both challenges and opportunities to European banks. “The payments landscape is changing dramatically,” says Rian Boden, editor of What’s New in Payments. “Just as mobile and wearable payments are starting to become a part of consumers’ lives, the emergence of the Internet of Things is promising to take commerce to whole new environments and form factors, from the smart home to the connected car.

“With these changes come new challenges and lessons to be learned for those responsible for building, delivering and ensuring widespread consumer adoption of the latest connected commerce experiences.

“In this report, leading innovators from around the world have come together to share their firsthand experiences with NFC World readers and discuss the key trends they are witnessing — from the evolution of artificial intelligence and mobile money to the emergence of mobile-only banks — and how they expect them to change the way we pay.”
