- digital offers (coupons, loyalty, etc.)
- payments from a variety of devices, including mobile devices, automobiles (in-car payments), televisions, virtual reality, and Internet of Things devices
- various aspects of payment flow, including initiation of payment, recurring payments, receipts, and refunds
- emerging regulations
