Alternative Payment Examples
Expected to make up 46% of global payments by 2021 (from 18% in 2016)*, eWallets are the fastest growing payment method across the world. Easy-to-use, eWallets allow consumers to either use pre-loaded funds, or take funds from another payment method, like a credit card. Examples: Alipay, PayPal, Qiwi, and Yandex.
Real-time bank transfers
Bank transfers are predicted to become the second most popular payment method globally by 2021*. Consumers can use their usual bank account details to make a payment immediately. Examples: iDeal, Sofort and Trustly.

Local Card Schemes
Worldpay offers local card schemes that have a large market share in their domestic market and are therefore an opportunity to grow cross-border business. An example is France’s Carte Bancaire which saw €465.6 billion in payments in 2016. Other examples include Bancontact - Belgium, and UnionPay - widely accepted in Asia.
