ABSTRACT: The global economy is powered by 125 million businesses, and payments between these businesses, their customers and their vendors are transacted over a variety of technologies. In the US, 21 million businesses generate over $127 trillion in annual payments volume, with small businesses generating nearly half of those payments. Of the $58 trillion in payments generated by small business, $42 trillion are still sent as old-fashioned checks. The rest are digital payments: $11 trillion in ACH payments to bank accounts, $3 trillion in credit card payments and $2 trillion as “other.”

That small slice of “other” payments represents the early days of new payment technologies– a rapidly evolving ecosystem of new digital payment technologies, cryptocurrency and blockchain being created by fintechs, banks and large players, like Facebook and JP Morgan. Over time, the remaining $56 trillion in payments will shift from paper checks to more digital forms. A sea change in the payments landscape is eminent, and in many ways the US is behind in digital acceptance.

In this talk, I will discuss the payments ecosystem is evolving rapidly to accelerate global commerce and allowing domestic businesses to have a global customer base:

* Banking rails developed during the original Cold War connect a fragmented web of global commerce.

* The credit card ecosystem spans card issuers, networks, merchant acquirers and modern payments companies that include Square, Stripe and Adyen.

* New payment platforms deliver instantaneous payments over existing payment rails.

* A new wave of stable-value crypto shows promise as a currency that is tailored for cross-border payments and business commerce.

* Blockchain is still evolving, but some use cases for business processes and back-office settlement processes are starting to materialize.

* A new wave of fintechs, like Bill.com, deliver payments platforms that navigate these payment rails and leverage AI and machine learning to deliver payments efficiently and securely.
