Vendorcom is a membership organisation which represents key stakeholders in the cards and payments industry in Europe. Its main aim is to promote innovation, create a platform for thought leadership, provide a forum for knowledge sharing and issues resolution for its members and encourage capability development across the cards and payments industry.

Since starting in 2003, Vendorcom has supported the industry by providing a representative voice and acting as a single point of authoritative and credible information for its members. It ensures that decisions made by industry influencers take into account the issues and concerns of solution providers who collaborate constructively with existing working bodies within the cards and payments industry. STS has been a member of Vendorcom for many years. The two organisations collaborated closely in the UK’s launch of Chip & PIN.

There are almost 100 companies in Europe that are full members of Vendorcom, taking advantage of all the community has to offer. In addition, there are over 500 companies including card schemes, acquiring banks, QSAs, consultancies, systems vendors and merchants that have participated in the community’s quarterly thought leadership conferences and special interest groups in the past 12 months.
