FTA 3860 01 - Emerging Payments Technology
CEUs: 3.00
Electronic payments are the life blood of e-Commerce. They are expanding rapidly and changing because of the pervasive use of electronic devices, whose use is not confined to consumer transactions. The course covers a wide variety of electronic payment mechanisms used to make payments worldwide. The course is designed to stimulate creative thinking about the use of new technologies in the movement of money, from small peer-to-peer transactions through the largest interbank payments. Even though everyone is familiar with money on a day-to-day basis, very few people understand how money actually moves. Payments are complex because they usually involve at least five parties -- in addition to the buyer and seller there are also the buyer's bank, the seller's bank and the country's central bank, and this does not even include service providers who transmit payment data and aggregate transactions. The buyer and seller must communicate with each other concerning the transaction, then instructions must be transmitted to the buyer's bank, which then takes action at the central bank to cause money to appear in the seller's account in the seller's bank. When different currencies are involved, the central banks of two countries are involved. Every payment system must provide for secure communication of payment orders. The course covers banking systems, e-payment security, foreign exchange, Internet banking, wireless payments, stored-value cards, micropayments, peer-to-peer payments, large-scale B2B payments and the future of money.
