Proposed IG Process

The Web Payments IG should act as a steering committee for the Web Payments Activity. In addition to some administrative tasks, the IG should identify targets for standardization, and work to produce Working Group charters for groups that will create the actual standards. To help fulfill this part of the IG mission, we have a proposed process (under discussion).

Internet of Value

  • Today's payment networks are disconnected like the documentation systems that the Web sought to connect. This task force explores how the Web can connect new and existing value networks and enable cross-network clearing and settlement that is secure, low-cost, and fast.

The central question will be how standardization could make web payment mechanisms more interoperable, accessible and competitive.

Let's design an open payment scheme for the Web.
