GSMA Digital Commerce Seminar: The Payment Services Directive (PSD2) – Transforming the Payment World

Start: Tuesday 19 January 2016

End: Tuesday 19 January 2016

Location: London, United Kingdom

Panel discussion seminar v2


Join the GSMA for an informal workshop exploring PDS2 within the Changing Payments Landscape. Hear from a panel of expert speakers who will help you navigate your way through this often complex environment.

The European Payment Services Directive (PSD2) will further open up the payment market in Europe. Digital Commerce is fundamentally changing how we buy and pay for goods. With great ease, consumers can now browse myriad markets and products from all over the globe and pay for them with the simple click of a button.

The European Commission is pushing towards the European Digital Single Market (DSM) to modernise the legislative framework for both domestic and cross-border payments by making them easier and more secure.

PSD2 will change the mobile and online payments market significantly.  It aims to strengthen security by introducing strong, two-factor customer authentication standards. The recognition of new players as payment institutions, authorised to access the users’ accounts, means that new players offering consumers the opportunity to pay online via bank accounts, will find it much easier to enter the market.

The event will be hosted and moderated by Claire Maslen, GSMA’s Senior Financial Services Manager.
