A Brief History of ETA
The association began in 1990 as the Bankcard Services association, with fewer than 20 people from the industry gathering to develop one voice. In 1996, the group realized the need to broaden its scope of industry representation and changed its name to the Electronic Transactions Association. ETA is now an association with nearly 500 member companies in 30 countries.
