PYMNTS is a recognized global leader for data, news and insights on innovation in payments and the platforms powering the connected economy.

Founded in 2009, PYMNTS is the source that decision-makers turn to when seeking a balanced, curated and informed point of view on the role of payments, connected devices and new tech in transforming how people and businesses pay, get paid and monetize their interactions.

PYMNTS uses proprietary research, data analysis and executive insights to create content. That content helps start conversations with readers – between colleagues, their partners and among executive teams, as well as on social channels – about how innovations in payments are shaping the future of our connected world, and how it impacts business decisions.

Since day one, PYMNTS’ guiding principle has been about “what’s next.” We use a set of proven frameworks based on cutting-edge economics to determine how innovation ignites and scales in dynamic markets, enabling us to identify and analyze relevant trends well before they become mainstream.

Today, “what’s next” includes an expanded focus on the connected economy. We examine the impact of new technology, data and connected devices on the 10 pillars that drive global economic growth: how people live, work, shop, bank, eat, stay well, have fun, travel, stay connected and live – and, of course, how they pay and are paid.

PYMNTS.com is a wholly owned subsidiary of What’s Next Media & Analytics. We are a diverse, highly efficient, remote-first team working on four continents with physical offices in Boston, Chicago and Buenos Aires.
