The retail payment landscape has been changing fast since the past decade. Worldwide, traditional means of payment such as cash and payment cards are about to be succeeded by new digital forms of payment, such as payments via smart phones and e-wallets. Consumers no longer rely on points-of-sale to buy their purchases, but buy increasingly more on the Internet, as e-commerce becomes common among large groups of consumers. Also, the retail payment infrastructure itself is challenged.
It is important to understand the economics that drive future payment developments and to take a forward-looking view anticipating which factors may affect the retail payments landscape in the next decade.

The conference will bring researchers and policy makers together to present new academic work and the latest policy insights. Topics of discussion include:

  • Innovation in retail payments including online payments, mobile payments, real time payments and block chain payment technology
  • Pricing, competition, regulation issues and switching behaviour in retail payments
  • Access to payment accounts, privacy and identity issues
  • Payment habits and use of different payment instruments
  • Usage of retail payments data in economic analysis and macro-economic forecasting
