Payments have been evolving for thousands of years. From the age-old bartering system, to cash, to check to electronic forms of payments, people have found innovative and more efficient ways to make a payment. This evolution has resulted in a significant shift in the current mix of consumer payments: from primarily paper-based (cash or check) to increasingly electronic (e.g. credit, debit and pre-paid) payment methods. The rate of change and the movement to electronic payments has been accelerated by the explosive growth of payments being made in non face-to-face transactions.
