Merchant Acquiring: Western Europe
The acquiring and processing market in Western Europe is far from homogeneous. In several markets the landscape is dominated by some form of co-operative utility for acquiring and/or processing and these often have a widely held ownership structure derived from the banking community.
In other markets the acquiring industry is largely typified by large domestic banks competing in the acquiring space using in-house or outsourced processing services.
