How we decided on The 2021 Cross-Border Payment Processors 100
The companies, which are grouped by their headquarters country, were selected based on the following:
- Whether they process payments and/or provide merchant acquirer or merchant aggregator services, rather than just payment acceptance services.
- Whether they process payments in-house – instead of through a partnership or joint venture.
- Whether they have a significant cross-border offering.
- Their presence in various industry sources as incumbents in the payment processors space, based on key metrics, eg amount of transactions processed.
And our sense check is always the following: if any player above was no longer operating in the space, would the sector notice? For everyone above, we believe the answer is yes.
