Shoptalk Europe 2022: A recap
Shoptalk USA is one of the largest retail trade shows in the world and has been a must-attend event within the paytech industry for years. From June 6-8, 2022, Shoptalk Europe took place in London for the first time. The IXOPAY team was represented at the premiere with a booth and used the opportunity to exchange information about Payment Pains & Gains with merchants worldwide.
Covid19 and its aftermath
Even if there is currently a short pandemic break, Covid19 was also in the foreground at Shoptalk.
Due to its worldwide impact, many classic brick & mortar retailers had to convert to online trading in no time. The merchants themselves also see that not everything went smoothly and that there is a lot of need for optimization. Many merchants are therefore using the current breathing space to scrutinize their setup and create a sustainable basis.
In the dense jungle of online services and platforms, many merchants have also resorted to the first available payment provider to get their online store up and running as quickly as possible. These setups did their job in the initial waves of Covid, but will they hold up to further waves? Can they be scaled? Do they allow the merchant to grow and expand?
A sustainable payment setup
The clear answer to these questions, which the IXOPAY team heard repeatedly at Shoptalk, was "No." Currently, many merchants are looking for reliable and long-term partners who can manage to optimize their setup and make it scalable. One of these desired partners is IXOPAY, which, thanks to payment orchestration, enables a stable and sustainable payment stack that offers all the functions a merchant needs to grow.
