Cost Saving Opportunities in the Network Payment Services Market

The adoption of various cost-optimization levers helps buyers of network payment services realize direct cost savings and enhance category management and value benefits (including reduced procurement complexities).

Technavio procurement experts have segmented the cost saving opportunities in the network payment services market into the following value-enhancement opportunities:


  • Adoption of technology
  • Supplier Competition
  • Adoption of negotiation strategies
  • Optimization of procurement practices
  • Bundling of services


Adoption of technology saving aspects

Technologies such as mobile wallet, NFC payment, EMV security and WAP payment enable contactless payments, which are secure and easy to execute. The adoption of such technologies can lead to cost savings to the extent of 15%. Buyers prefer suppliers that provide payment gateways and fraud detection services by building and maintaining a secure network and implementing strong access control measures.

Supplier competition saving aspects

Optimization of supply pool segregation is critical in the global network payment services market. Category spend managers suggest tracking of supplier performance against a defined set of KPIs (which are agreed upon by both parties during contract negotiation) such as active customer accounts, the volume of payments, and percentage of successful payments. Buyers should evaluate the suppliers’ ability to innovate and reduce complexities in network payment transactions to ensure accurate results with minimum cost and time.

Bundling of services saving aspects

One of the most opportunistic strategic cost saving levers in the global network payment services market is the bundling of payment gateway with payment processing. Buyers prefer suppliers that guarantee the settlement of transactions between the acquirer and issuer bank and reduce the buyers’ credit risks due to any financial failure.

It is imperative that suppliers develop strategies and continuously monitor the financial and political health of the organization, and economic operating environment of the customer to mitigate risks.
