The ePayments Systems Observatory maintains an epayments database focused primarily around epayments in Europe.
The ePSO project is part of the European efforts to leverage payment systems innovation in the move towards promoting e-commerce in Europe. Its objectives are:
- to monitor and analyze the strategic views of market players and experts
- to strengthen communication across groups of actors, sectors, channels and countries, with a view to assist standardization and regulatory bodies to keep pace with the evolution of technology.
The ePSO project is co-financed by the European Commission DG Enterprise ISIS Programme and the IPTS. It is supported by the European Parliament and European Commission Services involved in payments.
