Building a product is hard. Partners can make that experience easier or more challenging depending on what they bring to the table. Our experience in building a payment platform has taught us that choosing partners and service providers is just as important if not more so than choosing your stack. We want to share our learnings and war stories from the frontline.

​​A great partner adds strategic value, works with you to align roadmaps and provide visibility into the changing landscape (from their perspective), and shares their deep technical experience with you to improve collaboration and mutual benefit. A partner is more than just a SaaS API.

​​These are some of our experiences with what works and doesn't work, and some red flags that you should look out for.

Eight years ago SeatGeek processed exactly zero payments, instead sending customers to checkout across various other ticketing partners. Today SeatGeek helps millions of fans attend live events each year, and every one of them seamlessly purchases from the thousands of sellers on the site. SeatGeek now works with some of the marquee teams, venues and leagues around the world, including teams from the NFL, NBA, MLS and English Premier League.

​​Scaling payment solutions to keep up with the needs of a rapidly growing company is challenging. In this session the payment team at SeatGeek will talk about the evolution of the company as a marketplace, and how Spreedly has helped it scale and plan for the future.

Mostly we think of the payment network as being a system that lets money flow from consumers to businesses, but in reality it facilitates a lot of money moving the other direction, too: from businesses to consumers via refunds, rebates, loyalty programs, and more. At Giving Assistant we've leveraged this to build an international loyalty program for our members that gives them real cash back while doing good for nonprofits at the same time. You'll get to hear the details of this "upstream" usage of the payment networks, the challenges we've run into as we've scaled to sending weekly worldwide payments to our members (including why my face is most likely on the wall somewhere at Stripe), and the "golden ticket" we've built on top of Spreedly that lets us use the credit/debit networks to put money on any Visa or Mastercard, anywhere in the world.

Payments projects run the gamut in terms of complexity, and if you’ve done one before, you know they can quickly get out of hand. Doing the right up-front research can be the difference between a reasonably smooth project and a total disaster zone. This will be a fun, practical talk about setting payments projects up for success from day one, covering everything from researching the legacy systems that have to be integrated with, to wrangling partner API’s, to building internal alliances with departments like accounting.

The hospitality industry, with its high-volume of consumer-driven transactions, has been under immense pressure to change to accommodate new standards such as EMV into their flow. Because Radtab builds solutions for hospitality businesses to navigate all the change, we get a front row seat to see how EMV, POS integration, tokenization, ApplePay, etc., are all affecting not just hospitality, but all businesses with a physical presence. This talk will give you a map that’ll help you navigate the dynamic region where card-present and card-not-present transactions collide.

Roughly 1 in 5 people around the world live with a disability, and in the United States alone people with disabilities control $175 billion in discretionary income. Unfortunately, many sites and apps on the web can be near-impossible to use, even with assistive technology. Payment flows are generally designed to be usable, with minimal steps and clear directions, because it's known that that increases conversion and purchases. At the same time, though, many of the same flows neglect accessibility concerns and make it difficult for a significant portion of the population to buy.

In this talk, I'll discuss the basics of web accessibility, reveal accessibility mistakes that are common on payment forms and in payment flows, and give you some practical tips on how to improve the payment experience for your own users.

Payments in the generosity sector and people who makes those payments follow very different rules to traditional transactions for goods and services. When people are unable to give "in the moment" they may not give at all!

Even if you don't work in the Generosity sector, the lessons learned from trying to ensure payments continue to be handled and processed in spite of failing gateways, network outages & misconfiguration (and how you can turn this into a competitive advantage) is applicable to anyone processing payments from end-users.

In 2015, the small team at Clubhouse (https://clubhouse.io) decided they were ready to launch their SaaS project management system. The only big thing left to do was set up a payments system. They settled on Stripe, and set about connecting it to their backend system (built in Clojure and Datomic). What looked simple and straightforward on the surface, proved to be one of the company's most formidable challenges.

In this talk, I’ll share my team's experience in setting up and managing this integration. During the talk, we’ll cover:

Balancing customer support vs. engineering concerns;
Managing complexity vs. accepting third-party logic;
The unique challenges of user management with Datomic; and
The importance of payment systems in pulling down the SaaS metrics your company's leadership will inevitably want.
