"Innovative Payments:
Looking to the Future"
Presented by Ruth Harpool, CampusGuard

Monday, March 13, 2023
8:00 – 9:00 AM ET

Today’s payments landscape is rapidly changing. There are over 200 alternative payment methods globally and most are designed to move payments "faster." We know faster does not always mean practical, safer, or more efficient. So what does "faster" really mean? 


This session will share insights on consumer adoption trends and what higher education needs to know about alternative payments. We’ve all heard of Zelle, Apple Pay, Venmo, and cryptocurrency, to name a few.  What are the leading faster payment methods? How do they compare to each other and to traditional payments like check, wire transfer, and ACH? Can they be accepted from both domestic and international payers? Are they safe? Are they regulated? Can they be integrated into your existing in-house and vendor provided systems? 


This session lays out the fundamentals of alternative and faster payments and provides insight into developing a payments strategy.
