The Five Pillars of Your Payments Strategy
Sundeep Kapur, Digital Credence Inc.

Your members pay for products and services every single day. Their wallet carries numerous cards and one or more of these cards could even power their digital wallet(s). FinTech and large financial institutions continue to pursue your members to adopt their “superior, seamless, convenient, secure, and incentive-laden” payment instruments.

How do you compete in this arena? What would it take for you to earn your members’ confidence to be that top of wallet card? What would a leading with payments strategy do for your credit union? Can you truly lead with payments?

Five things form the foundation of an effective payments strategy:

  1. Superior Service: Timely and proactive responsiveness that will make it easier for you to serve members, keep them, and get new members
  2. Earnings Growth: More cards, more usage, portfolio growth – payments as a strategic moneymaker for your credit union
  3. Circumvent Fraud: Fight to circumvent fraud – card present, card not present, social engineering, heuristics, and even curtail false positives
  4. Drive Innovation: The future is about touch-point real-time authentication – card controls, deciphering big data, and being like or better than FinTech
  5. Consistent Experiences: Giving the members seamless frictionless experiences – p2p, debit, credit, ACH, digital wallet

Join a discussion on ideal practices. Innovative, yet practical ideas to power your payments strategy.
