PayComm - The Knowledge Library of the Payment Industry

Zur deutschen Seite

Welcome to PayComm!


For over 16 years now, parties interested in the payment methods used on the European payment market have been turning to PayComm for data, information and training materials in this regard; we fulfil this demand in the form of an extensive, continually growing knowledge library.

Our knowledge library contains relevant information on payment methods, card issuance, card acceptance, payment technologies, payment security, and industry regulation, as well as market data relating to the German and all of Europe’s principal markets.

With the entire library being maintained in two languages, not only staff in German-speaking regions benefit from it, but also those working for organisations with English as their corporate language. Besides the library’s ergonomic, theme-based structure, a free-text search function further accelerates and simplifies the task of locating the topics of interest.

The platform meanwhile hosts around 800 chapters in German and English, comprising over 10,000 individual documents in total. The vast majority of those documents has been quality assured by an autonomous Advisory Board. This makes PayComm Europe’s largest professional platform for payment-related information.

PayComm also has qualified technical editors who compile country reports and extensive training materials on payment topics, exclusively available to members and users. These documents are prepared without competitive bias and advertising, and are distributed intentionally in PowerPoint (PPT) format to let PayComm members and users employ them directly at their organisations. Members can thus embed entire PayComm training documents, or excerpts from them, in their company-internal (further) training measures.

Our member meetings and internal events offer a venue for members to exchange expertise and to strengthen and grow their own industry networks.

PayComm e.V. was formed on 19. February 2003 and currently has 45 member companies with over 2,100 users in 17 countries across Europe.
