The 4th edition of the e-Payments Challenge is happening with a virtual Co-Innovation Opening on the 17th of November, followed by a hackathon hosted in Paris on 26-28 January, 2022!

WHAT FINTECHS SAY ABOUT THE
"The XcooBee team saw the Worldline e-Payment Challenge as an intense world-class boot camp and learning event, and it delivered on all fronts. It brought our team together to showcase what we have built to address a changing contactless customer experience expectation against the backdrop of COVID. We were able to receive critical and immediate feedback and see the incredible proposals being offered by all participants. We are grateful to have been selected to continue refining our solution with co-operative client engagement in one of the premier hotel groups in the world.”
CEO & Founder of XcooBee
“We're thrilled to have participated in the e-Payments Challenge and the feeling of winning, not just the digital receipt track, but being crowned overall winner is fantastic. Our goal for the event was to get closer to Worldline and understand their thoughts and ideas for digital receipts. We have now come away knowing the right stakeholders and a shared goal of working together.
Worldline as a PSP partner for ReceiptHero can unlock large markets for us and we are relishing taking our next steps together.”
COO of ReceiptHero
“Our vision is to disrupt the payments industry by introducing 3D facial biometric solutions that consumers can totally control. We are immensely proud of the award and even more about the trust that Accor puts in us to implement the solution. We look forward to deepening our partnership with Worldline and Accor to deliver our solutions and grow the company.”
CEO of OneVisage
“The e-Payments Challenge is an amazing opportunity to meet with ‘real’ corporate customers, Worldline assets managers and business lines and test the market appetite for our solutions. This year’s e-Payments
Challenge was a remote event and for A3BC if offered the chance to e-meet with really kind and smart people. I would strongly recommend this event to any start-up within the payment industry.”
