Special offer: now 20% off original full report price
In the wake of the Great Recession, Congress took steps to significantly reregulate the U.S. payments industry. And years later the industry is still working to fully understand the impact of these new laws and rules.
All forms of payment – including debit cards – were affected. But the debit card interchange has promise, and Packaged Facts projects that it can exceed $20 billion as soon as 2015, supported by moderate volume and transaction growth assured over the next several years. New legal developments may throw through debit cards another curveball, but Packaged Facts expects debit volume and value to grow more than 7% in 2014 and 2015, as the market continues to chip away at the more than $3 trillion of cash and check expenditures that remain ripe for electronic conversion. Traditional banks need to keep strong debit options available to their customers, since they’re losing them to direct banking operations and alternative banking concepts.
