Welcome letter from Pete Wickes

Welcome to the September issue of Worldpay View, the monthly e-newsletter from Worldpay from FIS, offering insight into the world of payments.

In this issue, and with one week to go, we’re excited to announce none other than former England rugby captain Martin Johnson as our headline speaker for this year’s Rethink UK. The event will take place at the St Pancras Renaissance Hotel in central London on 26th September. Rethink UK is your opportunity to network and gain invaluable insights on how to get ahead in an increasingly complex industry. We’ll equip you with the necessary tools and knowledge to formulate your company’s payments strategy and help you connect your payment drivers to your business priorities. To register your place, please click here, and hurry, because time is running out.

We have an important industry update for you as well. Please be sure to read the Final reminder on Contactless Floor Limits, which must be set to zero (some sector exemptions). If you have any questions, please contact your Account Director or your usual Worldpay contact.

Don’t miss, “Spotlight on Australia.” We take a look at how credit cards remain Australian’s top payment preference for online shopping, and how Australians are embracing other payment methods.

And finally, we are excited to share our new whitepaper, “Protect your revenue with point-to-point encryption.” In an increasingly technology-led world, protecting consumer data is more critical than ever, and the payment industry is always developing new ways to help protect businesses and their customers. Point to point encryption, or P2PE, is one of the principal security developments which removes clear text data from an organization’s network to help secure payments from the point of sale through authorisation. Please take the time to read our whitepaper about this technology and why it’s important.

I hope you enjoy reading this Worldpay View e-newsletter and find it both interesting and informative.

Best wishes,

Pete Wickes
