Continued improvements in credit quality are a cause for optimism in the payments industry. UCRA is seeing a shift from addressing compliance and risk weaknesses back onto the growth agenda in recent times. This focus on growth has also been accompanied by an increase in payments innovation.
This will however, lead to uncertainty in the traditional payments field as plastic gives way to mobile payments. Expectations by merchants, and the roles played by the incumbent payments companies, is beginning to change, with growing unwillingness by merchant exchanges and other non-traditional joint ventures to pay traditional interchange fees to the credit card industry.

As promising as these new solutions are for consumers, they threaten to add cost to the issuers, and may impact on brand products and experience.
