Payment ecosystem

Due to the emergence of new technologies such as contactless, smartphones, tokenization and cloud remote management, today’s payment ecosystem is far more sophisticated and complex than when the first EMV payment cards were introduced nearly two decades ago.

Mobile payment

Near field communication (NFC) technology is changing the way consumers pay for low value goods, access transit networks and collate or redeem coupons. With the launch of Host Card Emulation (HCE) on Android, and the success of Apple Pay, NFC services have already been launched in many parts of the world. To successfully deliver these new services, it is important for payment schemes, banks and merchants to quickly adapt to this new mobile ecosystem.

Fime has developed a dedicated training program to support organizations throughout this transformation.

Today, every country has its own payments standards. This means that each distributor has to adapt its solution to fit the specific requirements of each geographical area. 

The purpose of nexo standards is to design and develop card payment acceptance messages based on the ISO 20022 standards.  The nexo protocols and specifications ensure the interoperability of different payment systems and equipment at an international level. 

Fime’s nexo and others standards training programs give a detailed explanation of the different specifications and protocols applicable to market players. It also provides information on best practices for understanding the standards with confidence.
