    Why eCommerce Payment Orchestration Will Make Your CFO Smile

    Why eCommerce Payment Orchestration Will Make Your CFO Smile

    From cryptocurrencies to subscriptions, to buy now pay later solutions, to fraud prevention technology... the eCommerce payments space is constantly evolving.

    Most online stores want backup payment gateways in case one fails. Large enterprise needs to offer shoppers in different regions of the world local payment methods. All the while, finance teams are stuck waiting on development backlogs and struggling to test and measure new payment options.

    If you dig in a bit deeper, you learn that few merchants are promoting the payment gateways and processors that best align with what an individual shopper is purchasing.

    In this episode, we looked at the emerging field of payment orchestration which promises to make it easy for finance teams to take back control of eCommerce payment processing in order to increase sales and profits.

    The Future of Magento: 2022 and Beyond

    The Future of Magento: 2022 and Beyond

    The first episodes of our podcast were focused on Magento. That was over 3 years ago.

    We've gone on to publish over 90 episodes that speak to eCommerce professionals and digital marketers. Many episodes have focused on topics that are specifically important to the Magento ecosystem. However, in this 95th episode, we've gone back to our roots to take a deeper look at the state of Magento and the community that powers it.

    Host: Robert Rand, JetRails.com

    ***Important Note:
    In this episode, Robert mentioned that in 2021 many Magento extension developers lost access to Adobe Commerce dev licenses. We've since heard from Adobe that they're actively working to address this issue. However, we decided to leave it in the episode because it's part of a bigger conversation about extensions, and it's also a great example of the Magento community speaking up, and the Adobe team listening.
