PHOTO COVERAGE: ETA Hosts Emerging Markets Lunch and Learn on Capitol Hill

Electronic payments make markets safer,  secure and transparent. And as cash use becomes less common and new payments innovations are introduced, the payments industry can lead the way in providing these benefits to new emerging markets.

Representatives from ETA member companies Green Bits and Vantiv Entertainment Solutions discussed the challenges the industry faces when federal and state laws differ Monday afternoon at the ETA Lunch and Learn on Emerging Payments on Capitol Hill.

ETA hosted the learning session for policymakers and staffers to learn more about how the payments industry thinks about emerging markets like online gambling and legal cannabis and the many ways merchants can benefit from the payments system.

The featured speakers were Charlie Wilson, Chief Revenue Officer of Green Bits, a leading electronic point of sale and compliance platform to manage legal cannabis stores, and Joe Pappano, General Manager, Vantiv Entertainment Solutions, a leading electronic and payments card processor.
