Though the checkout process signifies success for merchants, locking in critical revenues that keep a business healthy and secure, it also contains a covert foe that quietly harms balance sheets everywhere.
The processing fees that eat into merchants’ sales, which may seem harmless at just 2% to 3% of each credit or debit card transaction, totaled $138 billion in 2021, a sum that has more than doubled over the past decade.

This emerging technology is largely untapped in the US for shopping but has inbuilt familiarity via the popular feature of automatic bill pay. The path to broad retail acceptance of online bank transfers will depend upon consumers’ willingness to experiment with new payment methods. Our research shows the willingness is already there.
