Merchant Acquiring: Asia-Pacific

Merchant Acquiring: Asia-Pacific

  • 4,09700

Merchant acquiring and processing across Asia-Pacific is far from homogenous; it is a collection of quite unique markets.

In most markets the predominant model is competition among a few large banks, although there are a number of markets where there are ‘specialised’ domestic acquiring entities and markets with a presence from international players such as First Data and Global Payments. However, the presence of international players, who are all essentially US-based, is more limited than in Western Europe.

Lafferty's Merchant Acquiring series examines key issues such as consolidations, acquisitions and alliances and will help you to review your current strategies in a rapidly evolving market, as well as enabling you to benchmark your activities against your peers – nationally, regionally and internationally – and enable you to prepare for the future with confidence.

It also provides you with critical data for each country, including:

    * merchant acquirer market share, including:

    * number of merchant accounts

    * number of POS transactions

    * billed volume of POS transactions

    * merchant service charges

    * issuer/processor relationships

    * acquirer/processor relationships

    * issuing processor market share by card numbers

    * acquiring processor market shares by number of POS transactions.
