Payments Gone Viral: The Rise of Social Commerce

Mar 11, 2017

3:30pm – 4:30pm CT

Augmented reality. Hashtag payments. Messenger bots. The payments space is fundamentally changing: cash and checks gave way to credit and debit cards, which are now being replaced by apps. In an era where social proof reigns supreme, how is social media shaping the future of commerce?

Meet a diverse cross-section of companies pioneering social payments: the ability to buy, pay and give on social media. Moderated by finance veteran Hans Morris (Visa, Citigroup, Nyca Partners), this session shows how the latest technologies enable people to pay where they play. Learn what is and isn’t working in various verticals--from charity to commerce to P2P--and what it means for the future of payments.
