The global pandemic has accelerated the already-existing trend of people starting their own businesses (in the U.S. alone, we recorded 30 million small merchants and 40 million independent contractors in 2020).

Onboarding businesses across financial services, payments, and eCommerce marketplaces need to happen both swiftly and accurately; in an era of high competition, a merchant struggling with a sluggish or high friction onboarding process could very well sign up with a competitor instead.

At the same time, it's critical for organisations to know the identity of the merchants on their platform, a need that often results in a longer onboarding flow for the merchant.

Join Spencer McLain, VP & GM, EMEA at Ekata where he will discuss how organisations can use a mix of automation and enhanced manual review to speed up merchant onboarding for smaller merchants without sacrificing the thorough understanding of the risk involved
  • Learn about the market trends challenging merchant onboarding status quo and how onboarding micro-merchants and sole proprietors are different from traditional business
  • Find out how Stripe and others have built their onboarding processes to scale - how you can too, even if you only process 200 or fewer applications a month
  • Discover how to help drive better risk models and make faster decisions
