At a time plagued by uncertainty, when failure – even more than before – is not an option, businesses interested in expanding across borders must tread carefully, take all risks into account, and strategically leverage the resources at hand to ensure a comprehensive understanding of the local challenges they might face.
The fifth edition of the Cross-Border Payments and E-commerce Report continues the tradition of bringing together experts in various fields and offers crucial information to parties who may be considering expanding their operations internationally. The report emphasises the significance of leveraging strategic partners, such as payment orchestrators, and provides a thorough analysis of emerging trends and technologies that can help reduce costs.

Apart from first-hand insights from thought leaders representing merchants, fintech companies, marketplaces, PSPs, payment orchestrators and acquirers, FX service providers, logistics companies, and top consultants, the report includes two infographics that can help you get a clearer picture of the field of global payments and e-commerce:
- The first infographic outlines the capabilities of some of the key payment orchestration platforms (POPs). To provide you with the most accurate information, we contacted them to confirm whether they offer fraud capabilities as an additional service, acquiring services, and the types of tokenization they extend to their customers.
- The report also features a series of infographics focusing on marketplaces and platforms. To offer a clearer understanding of their capabilities, we further classified them based on three variables: the regions where they are present, the verticals in which they operate, and the target groups that they address. The result is a valuable resource for successfully navigating the online platforms and marketplaces space.
