Top 10 influencers in European emerging payments

 

Who do you turn to for your mobile, contactless and card payment blogging fix? Obviously omitting #totalpayments here, I set about thinking about who I turn to in my hour of need.  That got me nowhere, so i turned to the wonderfully geeky world of market analytics instead! And although I came away utterly discombobulated, I also miraculously came away with this top 10 list.  I defy you to disagree with me (if you do, i reserve the right to blame it wholly on the analytics)!

 

Remember this is European only!
