Understanding A2A and the shifting payments landscape

  • Lily Krakowsky, Senior Product Marketing Manager -- GoCardless
  • Siamac Rezaiezadeh, Director, Product Marketing -- GoCardless

Driven by investments in new and existing payment rails, open banking, and Gen Z consumers demonstrating a clear preference for safer, faster payment methods, account-to-account (A2A) payments have the potential to supersede card payments as consumers’ and businesses’ preferred payment method. But what exactly are A2A payments, what benefits do they offer organizations, and why are they on the rise now?

Join GoCardless as we cover: What account-to-account payments are, the pain points they address for your business, how they work, and why your organization needs to incorporate them into your payment strategy. We’ll also be discussing the latest global market trends and shift in payment preferences, the social trends and consumer behaviour that is driving change - including the death of cards - and the core value of the A2A ecosystem.

Learning objectives:

Upon completion of the webinar, the attendee should be able to:

  • Define account-to-account payments and the role of national payment rails
  • Discuss the overall value proposition of account-to-account payments

Hybrid Customers and Hybrid Attacks: What’s Going On?

Join us on Wednesday, November 3, 2021 at 09:00 Seattle (16:00 Dublin / 17:00 Berlin / November 4 00:00 Singapore / 03:00 Melbourne)

  • Dave Senci, Vice President, Product Development -- Mastercard

It used to be simple: Consumers interacted either offline or online. Attacks were either automated or by a human. It’s not quite like that anymore.

Thanks to the recent digital acceleration, users have more ways to interact now than ever before; accessing more services and, in doing so, combining online and offline activities. However, attacks have also evolved, blurring the divide between scripted and human attacks and using multiple placements as part of the same scheme to stay under the radar of most security tools.

Join us to understand what’s going on in the new digital landscape by looking at trends and attacks within the NuData network. Learn how to apply the findings to your own platform to be ready for this new post-pandemic reality.

Learning objectives:

  • Consumers are evolving into a hybrid consumer that interacts combining offline and online services for the same event.
  • Attacks are combining automation and human work as well as multiple placements as part of one single attack.
  • How to leverage behavioral tools to have different placements protected as well as give a better experience to consumers who interact across non-traditional placements.
