COVID19’s Effects on Payments Will Be Long Lasting

May 15, 2020

The COVID 19 pandemic has caused a lot of chaos for every industry in the economy. But when it comes to payments, the effect of the pandemic likely will be far reaching.

In this episode, Brian Tate, the CEO of the Innovative Payments Association, and the Association’s government relations director, Grant Hannah, talk about how the pandemic is affecting the industry now, and what the long-term implications might be. They cover COVID19 payments and the role that prepaid plays in delivering them and how future oversight might lead to more regulations.

They also talk about how the ongoing PayPal lawsuit against the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau will have its own effect on the payments landscape independent of the virus.

If you want to stay on top of new developments in the industry, plan to attend the IPA’s compliance boot camp on June 3. The boot camp will feature sessions spread out over a day that cover topics such as fraud, the PayPal lawsuit, and earned wage advance products. Register today at:
