The European payments ecosystem is in a period of transformation. PSD II is challenging traditional business models, new entrants are looking to disrupt the status-quo and new technology poses the potential for a fundamental shift in how payments are made and secured.
Cards & Payments Innovation Europe brought together leaders in payments to explore innovative strategies for future success. Blockchain, the Internet of Things and biometrics were featured in a content-driven programme focused on how best to add value and improve security for customers.

Pay After Delivery: creating an instant digital wallet
By allowing customers to order items and not settle the payment until they are delivered, Klarna looks to take the friction out of the shopping experience. In this talk, Rogier Schoute will illustrate why creating one-click buying & settlement experiences have benefitted both retailers and customers, leading to Klarna now being responsible for over 40% of all ecommerce sales in Sweden
Utilising open banking to provide the best possible service
Whilst the incoming PSD II regulation will force all banks to open up their APIs, there are those who already do this. In a vision of the future, a representative of Fidor Bank will discuss how the bank is able to engage its customers and add value for them in the context of this operating model.
Samsung Pay: Insights one year post-launch
On August 28th, 2015 Samsung Pay officially launched in South Korea to great acclaim. In one short year, Samsung Pay has launched across 7 markets and 5 continents. In this presentation, Nathalie Oestmann will explore the company’s rapid growth trajectory and what they have learnt about what is important in the mobile payments space across the customer base, for their partners and for the future.
- Changing purchasing behaviours: understanding the impact on payments
- Developing efficient and secure micropayments to enable success
- From social sharing to commercial monetisation
Exploring wearables: taking ease-of-use to the next level
In this session, delegates will get the chance to explore some of the key questions facing the growth of wearables with groups of their peers. Each table will then feedback the key conclusions from their debate to the rest of the audience. Drawing on the preceding presentations and helping to set the scene for the final session, discussion points will include:
- How will consumers benefit from the increase in wearable payments technology?
- Is the contactless infrastructure in Europe ready to support a wearables industry?
- What will the impact be on older methods? Are we witnessing the end of cards?
- How do you convince your customers to start using wearables?
- A step too far: is the pursuit of frictionless payments opening the doors to fraud?
- Embedded technology: what does the future hold for payments?
- What new authentication methods are set to become mainstream?
- Tokenisation: is further adoption the answer?
- Is biometrics the next step forwards?
- To what extent will security concerns limit innovation?
The EBA has published a draft of the Regulatory Technical Standard on strong customer authentication under PSD2. In its current shape, the RTS endangers the balance of security and convenience envisioned by the payment industry. In this presentation we will discuss how the current regulatory landscape may shape the “future of authentication” and how the industry can respond in order to create a payment experience that will delight customers.
Ensuring security on a wearable payment device
The number of wearable payment devices is growing quickly with easier and more discrete methods constantly being developed. However, the key to uptake will be ensuring the security of these devices. In this talk, Philip Campbell will shine a light on the Kerv smart ring and the steps the company has taken to ensure that any transaction made is secure and properly authenticated.
