Cards&Payments, published by SourceMedia, is a monthly magazine that has covered news and developing trends in the payments industry for more than 20 years.

"Our seasoned staff of writers across the globe will produce articles that incorporate the experiences of payments professionals in regions around the world. That will help our readers learn how colleagues elsewhere are attempting to solve similar payments challenges."
