The global merchant acquiring market is undergoing fundamental change. This is in line with changes in the payments industry environment across the world, which has resulted in the industry becoming more stratified and complex. Furthermore, pressure on profit margins is encouraging acquirers to look for growth opportunities in new locations and merchant segments. The level of fragmentation in the merchant acquiring ecosystem varies across the world as organizations in the merchant acquiring market typically handle multiple functions. However, it is worth noting that the value-added service provider, merchant aggregator and the ISO are optional components of the ecosystem, and the system can function without them. The direct acquiring model can be further classified into bank-driven, or card network or scheme-driven models. In a bank-driven model, the card scheme or network works as a communication facilitator between card issuers and acquirers. However, in a card scheme-driven model, the card scheme also acts as an acquirer. These are usually three-party closed payment systems such as American Express and Discover.
The merchant acquiring market has become more stratified with the emergence of aggregators and ISOs as market participants. The aggregator or facilitator can enable acquirers to gain access to riskier merchants with a lower risk than undersigning them directly. For example, mPOS aggregators such as iZettle and Square assume some of the risks, rather than the acquiring bank. These organizations function as 'sub-acquirers' - an organization that is licensed by an acquirer to bear the risk of their transactions. However, the transaction still goes through the network of the large acquirer, who receives a commission on the transaction.
