Invisible payments to take the stage as the new commerce norm

  • Strong customer demand, regulations, and infrastructure improvements will drive payment experiences that are instant and invisible, leading to a complete sector transformation.
  • Biometrics, tokenization, sensor fusion, and machine learning will lead the way for the application of invisible payments.
  • We can already see this trend in action through recurring billing, queueless checkouts, and cashierless stores.
Amsterdam, November 8, 2019 -- Payvision, a global fintech and omni-channel payments provider, released a new ebook exploring the future of commerce payments. The research looks into how the next generation of payments is reinventing the shopping experience, giving merchants clear insight into key strategic retail trends.

The future of payments is instant and invisible, triggered by the needs and demands of today's modern consumers: millennials and Gen Z. By 2020, the spending power of both consumer groups is projected to reach $1.4 trillion and $44 billion respectively, meaning that the future payments experience will be largely driven by their behavior. These consumers expect digital shopping experiences that are as natural as possible -- unconscious, even. Furthermore, in their quest for the best products and services, consumers want a seamless, integrated shopping experience, regardless of touchpoint. For them, the barriers between channels will blur so heavily as to become essentially nonexistent, proving that the payments transformation demands a clear need for omni-channel services.

Consumer behavior, regulatory developments such as PSD2, and modern infrastructure are converging to enhance innovation and growth in the payments ecosystem. As a result, mobile wallets such as Apple Pay, Google Pay, and WeChat Pay are growing in popularity. The day will soon come where you will no longer need to pull out a debit or credit card -- in fact, we estimate that 56% of all eCommerce transactions will be paid through mobile wallets by 2023.

The technologies used to deliver frictionless payment experiences include tokenization, sensor fusion, cameras, machine learning, and data analytics.

"Tokenization is a must have for all eCommerce businesses as well as any offline merchant that wants to offer a seamless checkout experience," explains Ankur Sharma, Payvision's Omnichannel Product Manager. "Not only does it safeguard sensitive cardholder data, we have also seen evidence in the ecosystem that tokenization can effortlessly raise conversion by up to 6%."

Invisible payments are already happening through recurring billing, queueless checkouts, and cashierless checkout. By 2023, invisible payment technologies will power $28 billion in transactions.

Payvision's latest ebook analyzes all factors, practical use cases, and technologies fueling the upcoming commerce payments transformation. Next to these, Payvision included advice for businesses to thrive in the competitive commerce arena. Get your free ebook on the most promising retail payment trends.
