How do you want to pay? [W3C workshop]

W3C announced a Workshop on Web Payments: How do you want to pay?, 24-25 March 2014, in Paris (France). The event is hosted by the W3C France Office.

This is a call for participation. W3C membership is not required to participate. The event is open to all. All participants are required to submit a position paper by 8 February 2014.

Workshop Objectives

This workshop seeks to make it easier to monetize open Web applications, as an effective alternative to proprietary native app ecosystems. In essence, we would like to improve the end user experience and give users greater freedom in how they pay, to reduce the burden on developers and merchants, and to create a level playing field for competing payment solutions providers large and small. We are expecting broad participation from financial institutions, governments, mobile network operators, payment solution providers, technology companies, retailers, content creators, and non-governmental organizations.

The workshop will seek to establish a broad roadmap for work on open standards for Web payments, along with proposals for initial small steps along the road. We thank Telefónica and Worldline for agreeing to co-chair the Workshop.
