A thriving community of payments professionals

The Emerging Payments Association (EPA) connects the payments eco-system, encourages innovation and drives profitable business growth. Our goals are to strengthen and expand the payments industry to benefit all stakeholders.

We achieve this by shaping a comprehensive programme of activities for our members with help from an independent board, which addresses key issues impacting the industry.

These include:

  • Annual events programme
  • Award ceremony
  • Leading industry projects
  • Lobbying activities
  • Training
  • Reports and whitepapers

The EPA is over 120 MEMBERS strong and growing. Our members come from across the payments value chain; including payments schemes, banks and issuers, merchant acquirers, PSPs, retailers, and more. These companies have come together, from across the UK and internationally, to join our association, collaborate, and speak with a unified voice.

Facebanx will be launching the first solution that solves the security issues around PSD2 at the Fraud conference

By developing a technology that creates a unique one time card number on a mobile device for every online transaction it solves the two key elements of PSD2: the customer is anonymous and if the card details are stolen they can’t be reused or resold. By having our solution use two independent channels for every payment, it means that if one channel is breached the other channel will not be affected

In addition, Facebanx’s solution allows US banks to leapfrog EMV migration without the need for expensive investment in infrastructure as it uses existing systems.

When combined with a risk based authentication system, using Facebanx’s single or multi-modal biometric technology, the solution creates a Secure, Frictionless and Regulatory compliant solution to PSD2.
