PRETA invited to join Ecommerce Europe’s online Payments Taskforce

Ecommerce Europe has set up a Payments Experts Taskforce whose goal it is to:

– Advise national associations and the e-Payments Working Committee on highly technical issues (i.e. consultations, amendments, etc.), market trends and possible future challenges;
– Assist Ecommerce Europe in translating market trends to current and future challenges and/or opportunities;
– Assist Ecommerce Europe in formulating the agenda for the European Institutions; and
– Create a technical link to the Euro Retail Payments Board (ERPB) and other stakeholder groups.

The kick-off meeting was held in Leipzig on 9 March 2017 to discuss the European Banking Authority’s regulatory technical standards on Strong Customer Authentication and how new technologies in online payments can increase conversion in e-commerce.
