Payments education is at the heart of what PaymentsEd is all about. Our merchant and advisor board members dedicate there time to providing best in class education and networking through our annual forum and year round educational content and webinars.


The Story

In 1989 a group of dedicated payment professionals set aside issues of competition and confidentiality to achieve an unprecedented objective; improve the payments environment for the benefit of all card not present and card-on-file merchants through education and collaboration.

The PaymentsEd Forum serves Card Not Present (CNP) payment professionals by providing educational opportunities focused on industry trends, operational best practices, and networking opportunities that shape the CNP landscape.

Every year, hundreds payments professionals work together to share knowledge, renew acquaintances and influence change in the payments industry.

The PaymentsEd Forum (formerly known simply as the Direct Response Forum) has provided premium educational sessions that give merchants relevant insight into current CNP rules, regulations, and processes. Our Forum is the only industry gathering that is 100% education focused and designed for merchants by merchants.
