Event Details

The Federal Reserve‘s release of proposed rules governing debit card interchange fees on December 16 has sent shockwaves throughout the payment industry.

The steep cut proposed, and the possibility that banks may have to carry two signature debit card networks, could have tremendous repercussions on the structure of the payment industry in the years to come.


The BayPay Forum, in partnership with Aite Group, will dedicate this event to examining the various scenarios likely to unfold in the months and years to come as a result. Among the issues the session will seek to address:

 - Will banks give up on debit?

 - Will acquirers win or lose from the new order?

 - Does the reform create new opportunities for innovation?

 - What impact is the reform likely to have on major card networks and alternative payment players?

 - What will be the impact on emerging products such as prepaid cards?

 - Will the reform prompt the advent of chip and PIN?


The event will have as usual ample time for networking which will start with an introduction from Daniel Chatelain, founder and Research director of the BayPay Forum, followed by a presentation from Gwenn Bezard, Managing director of AITE Group and will end with a panel to discuss the topic:

The BayPay Forum



If you are a member of the payment industry, you are invited to join BayPay, a networking group of the Silicon Valley focused on payments and composed exclusively of members in the payment community or investors in this area. If you are not yet a member and would like to join, reply to this email to get your free membership with a quick description on how you fit in the payment industry. Even after all these years, the payments industry is still expanding in both mature and emerging markets worldwide as the industry adapts to new market opportunities. New technologies including contactless cards, cell phone integration, biometrics, RFID and strong authentication are emerging and potentially creating new challenges for both financial institutions and their customers. Prepaid cards, gift cards, new forms of payment like PayPal, are all vivid demonstrations of the vibrancy of new thinking in the payments industry. With wireless ubiquity now essentially a reality, transaction aggregation and micro payments become a necessity. As the financial industry and merchants provide more and more services online, phishing emerges as a problem that requires more education and communication with consumers.

Objective BayPay's primary goal is to provide a face-to-face professional networking forum for the regular exchange of views on these issues among active professionals within the payments industry who are located in the San Francisco Bay Area. An online BayPay group on Yahoo! provides opportunities for members to interact among themselves between regular face-to-face meetings.

BayPay Is a joint initiative of Glenbrook, Edgar Dunn & Company and Daniel Chatelain from QSecure, Inc. that is open to other companies or individuals contributions.

Membership To ensure an appropriate level of professional participation, membership in BayPay group is by invitation only. BayPay members invite others to join based upon their own judgment as to who could best contribute to the group. To subscribe please go here.
