Are you a merchant, a marketplace, a brand or a payment professional who wants to get an advantage over the competition? Maybe you have heard of the term "Payment Orchestration," but do you know what it is in detail and can you explain it to your colleagues or in a strategy meeting?

In this course, we will explain what payment orchestration is, why it is important to at least know about it, when it makes sense to implement payment orchestration, and how to do it. It will be the opportunity to get the latest market data on size today and in the future of eCommerce in the US and the different categories of payment methods used in the US only. We counted 43 so far for the US and over 240 worldwide.

The course will also explain the functional architecture you should find in companies positioning themselves as payment orchestrators. This functional architecture will be followed by a review of each module that is part of the payment orchestration platform. After going through all these modules, you will know the answers to the questions above and whether they are something to consider for your organization. You will have the choice of partnering with a vendor already in the market or even building it yourself.

This course has been created by our CEO, Daniel Chatelain, a payment and fintech expert with many years of experience on the acquiring side, issuing side, or business and fraud/risk management. He also brings with him his many years of innovation behind him. This course is on-demand, but you will be able to ask questions during the course.

As of today, we have published the first 2 modules of the course in a series of 9 modules. Each lesson is between 1 and 5 minutes long to make it easy for busy payment professionals to access the course at any time, even during a 5 minute break.

Our mission is to build knowledge in the payment industry and shorten the time it takes for people to understand the industry. We have also decided to include this course in our subscription catalog, so for a small monthly fee, you can access not only this course but many others that are part of that catalog. We have an impressive list of over 240 different modules available to you for free once you become a member.
