Workshop to help subscription businesses master online payment processing

Boston, Aug. 19, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Businesses that rely on subscription revenue will learn how to reduce subscriber loss, improve renewal rates and increase recurring revenue at a day-long event exclusively focused on mastering the art and science of payment processing for monthly and annual fees.

Online publisher Subscription Insider and consulting firm Paul Larsen Consulting (PLC) will co-host "Subscription Accelerator: Mastering Payment Processing for Recurring Revenue" on October 22, 2015, in Boston.

"Credit card transactions are the heart of all subscription businesses, and nothing puts a damper on renewals like non-voluntary churn caused by declined cards," said Subscription Insider CEO and publisher Kathy Greenler Sexton. "Together with PLC, we have designed a deep dive for finance, marketing and product executives that will help them address 'card-not-present' issues and develop strategies to improve the lifetime value of customers."

Sexton added that many businesses are not prepared for the increase in declined payment cards expected in 2015 when U.S. payment card providers will reissue cards to comply with the new Europay, MasterCard and Visa (EMV) "Chip Card" global security standard. "It's going to be an enormous challenge for subscription businesses," she said.

"Subscription Accelerator: Mastering Payment Processing for Recurring Revenue" will provide insights from industry experts, engaging discussions, cases studies and strategies that executives can put into practice immediately. Leaders from a variety of organizations will find the conference helpful, including B2B and B2C companies of all sizes in technology, software, publishing, retail, online services, membership associations and many others. Topics will include:

  • Learning the trends, changing market dynamics and strategies that will be important for 2016.
  • Finding effective ways to minimize subscriber attrition rates and maximize the lifetime value of customers.
  • Studying best practices for subscriber and membership retention.
  • Using best-of-breed merchant processors to position businesses to succeed.
  • Choosing the right payment processing partners.
