Merchant Acquiring: Asia-Pacific
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.
