Have we Reached a Tipping Point in the Payments Industry?


New technologies could soon uproot traditional means of payment as companies such as Isis, Weve, LevelUp and MPayMe threaten the long established method of paying by a card swipe. However, the industry is still a long way from complete disruption as these technologies still rely on the card payment infrastructure to conduct payments.
