What to Expect from the Payment Industry: Possible Trends for 2024

Published on

New technology, as well as how people react to and interact with innovation, have compelled organizations across industries to seek updates on a regular basis. In my article today, I’ll discuss what I believe will happen in the payments sector over the next few years.

High-personalization in the Payment Experience

According to McKinsey, 71% of customers want companies to give a personalized payment experience, and 76% get frustrated when their expectations are not met. Buyers now have greater access to information than ever before, which raises expectations.

In this way, hyper-personalization is a trend that has the potential for significant expansion in the coming years. In terms of payment methods, this technology uses incredibly comprehensive data on buying habits to provide an analytical insight for personalizing the experience and making more assertive commercial decisions.

The goal here is to provide a frictionless checkout or payment experience in order to boost conversion rates and encourage customers to buy again.

Embedded Payments

Although Payment Service Providers (PSPs) have been embedding payments for as long as I can remember, by packaging different payment methods from different countries into the same API to reduce implementation time and centralize the business relationship with one provider, embedded payments took a different path for end-users.

In plain English, embedded payments eliminate lengthy checkouts by allowing customers to select their preferred payment method, such as PIX or Credit Card, and then click the embedded link to complete the transaction. Amazon pioneered embedded payment technology with its “Buy Now” immediate purchase button.

The goal is to eliminate friction, which will ultimately enhance approval rates and consumer loyalty.


It used to be called “One-click buy,” and it’s amazing how companies rename old things. PSPs and websites that do not support tokenization are lagging behind since it improves the security of online transactions.

The biggest advantage for the end user is that they don’t have to do any extra effort. The Card Schemes automatically tokenize data from the moment a business requests that its online transactions be tokenized to its PSP.


With the fall of FTX and the surge in crypto crime, there were great hopes that the sector would receive the legal clarity it had requested, and their wishes is almost granted. Despite the fact that cryptocurrency was designed to be decentralized, the industry requires legislative certainty from the government in order to advance. In 2023, Coinbase and Ripple threatened to leave the United States if legislators and regulators failed to provide certainty.

Crypto began the year in the spotlight, and its basis, the blockchain, extends beyond that. This decentralized structure ensures that no single party has complete authority over the system, which fosters trust and transparency. Each transaction is confirmed by various nodes in the network, and a consensus is required before the data is uploaded to the blockchain.

The use of blockchain technology in e-commerce provides numerous benefits to businesses and consumers alike. For businesses, blockchain improves supply chain management, reduces fraudulent activity, and increases transparency. For consumers, blockchain is a more secure, efficient way to make purchases and track shipments.

Bonus: Contactless

Contactless payment technology has become a hit with COVID-wary customers who want to avoid germy contact with cash and POS terminals. At the same time, contactless technology is popular because it cuts down wait time in a queue or at a counter.

The rise of contactless payments has been spurred by the global movement toward a more practical and seamless payment experience. Consumers are embracing the ease and quickness of tapping their cards or utilizing mobile payment apps to make transactions as technology develops.

Contactless payments have become increasingly popular, and the payments industry has worked hard to ensure retailers are able to offer customers the a higher limit.

Is your company set up to be a winner in 2024?
