October 5
9:00 AM - 9:15 AM Welcome to the APP South Regional Roadshow Let's gather, connect, and learn.
9:15 AM - 10:00 AM "Is It a PayFac or a Marketplace? Case Study Gameshow" This interactive session will use real-world cases to help us collectively learn the differences between what is being labeled a 'Payment Facilitator' and what is being called a 'Marketplace'.
10:00 AM - 10:45 AM "Growth in an Uncertain Economy" Growth markets. Declining markets. Whether we're riding the upswing or the downturn, the uncertainty around what is going to happen next is always present. This is even more impactful in the payments space with new business start-ups at an all time high, and constant changes in the banking and merchant space. Join Equifax as we explore the potential pitfalls and opportunities in this uncertain market.
10:45 AM - 11:00 AM Break Grab a coffee and start up a conversation with a stranger. Or discuss if the Terminus, the original name of Atlanta, was cooler or not. Or go find Ed Marshall or any person from AGG and say thank you for hosting the South Regional Roadshow.
11:00 AM - 11:45 AM FTC & Class Actions Threats posed by regulators and class action lawyers never stop evolving. Neither do the measures merchant acquirers can implement to mitigate regulatory and legal risk. Ellen and Ed will cover the latest.
11:45 AM - 1:00 PM Lunch Gather around the proverbial campfire for sandwiches and networking.
1:00 PM - 1:45 PM Authorizations Deep Dive & Insights Details coming soon - expect a deep dive on authorization codes, handling denials, ignoring codes, and best practices.
1:45 PM - 2:30 PM Which Way Is Up? The Labyrinth of Surcharging and Cash Discounting The saying “the devil is in the details” is never truer than when addressing the technicalities of a surcharging program. Join us for an in-depth look at the card brand rules, state laws, and recent card brand enforcement activity as we navigate the maze of surcharging and cash discounting.
2:30 PM - 2:45 PM Donut Break APP was started 26 years ago with the original founders gathering around coffee and donuts to collaborate on common challenges and fraud trends. We keep the tradition alive at every event with donuts for all!
2:45 PM - 3:30 PM "Mastercard Trends, Data, and Hot Topics" Hear from Mastercard as they give data, data, and more data. Session details coming soon.
3:30 PM - 4:15 PM Roundtable A rountable discussion with you, the audience, discussing the tougher cases, the trends, and the items discussed during the Regional Roadshow and items you are seeing daily. Ask questions of your peers. Share best practices. Find solutions and friends facing the same dilemmas that you are.
4:30 PM - 5:30 PM Reception Time to put away our notebooks, grab a drink, and connect.
