All Hands-On Deck: Strengthening Your Merchant Portfolio During Economic Uncertainty

An economic downturn can be a serious threat to acquirers, but it can also be an opportunity. Every recession comes with a spike in fraud and chargebacks, and many merchants will struggle to deal with these challenges on their own. Some acquirers will lose revenue as merchants enter monitoring programs or close up shop for good. Others will spring to the aid of their merchants in a time of need, earning lifelong customers and a sterling reputation. Join us to learn how you can help your merchants navigate difficult circumstances, strengthening their businesses as well as your own.
