No matter the term used, small business owners everywhere are performing the same payments-in-payments-out balancing act to keep business going.
The battle for cash flow has been a long fought one, and small business owners are continuing to find creative ways to make and receive payments on time. We surveyed 1000 small business owners and 1000 consumers to gauge their overall impression of different factors impacting the paymen

What to look out for next year and how to prepare your business.
The payments industry is an ever-changing environment, so we are constantly talking to businesses and shoppers to stay on top of the latest trends. However, some changes in shopping habits and customer preferences come as a surprise to even us. We recently surveyed 1000 customers and small businesses to identify key trends impacting how consumers shop and how businesses are managing their payments needs, and some of our findings were very different from what was expected.
