About the talk:
Sage Pay has collated data from over 1000 businesses and 1000 consumers across the UK in order to produce our annual Payments Landscape report. In this year's report we investigate the emerging trends and technologies in order to predict what's coming up over the next 12 months that businesses need to watch out for, as well as revealing the tips used by high growth businesses to boost conversion rates and increase profit. The report is also jammed full of insights into how consumers like to pay and what encourages them to buy.
So if you already have a business or you're thinking about setting one up, the Payments Landscape report is a
must-read to make sure you stay on top of one of the fastest moving industry's and increase those all-important conversion rates!
