While experts say the U.S. government is making strides in adopting more efficient policies through the use of technological innovations, federal officials are reportedly not building up these policies from scratch.

According to a new survey from CreditCards.com, more than 1 in 3 (36 percent) of millennials — people between the ages of 18 and 29 — have never had a credit card. Young adults, the poll indicates, are wary of credit cards because they came of age during the Great Recession, which brought about historic student loan debt. “Millennials’ … Read More

Sheep, so says the Chinese astrological calendar, are gentle, calm and cute – animals seen as symbols of peace, harmony and tranquility.

The Year of the … Read More
The Trend I’ve counted at least fifteen companies whose primary value proposition is converting a corporation’s payables to settlement via virtual cards, rather than check or ACH. Many of these companies offer other services (e.g., e-invoicing), but it is clear they make their real money on the interchange associated with these transactions. Some of these companies target large enterprises generally and some specialize in verticals ranging from healthcare to entertainment to higher education. Together, these … Read More

This is not because the PYMNTS editorial staff has any opinion on the matter of conducting State Department work through a personal email account; that is for political junkies … Read More

March saw a slight increase from February’s approval rate of 60.7 percent. Institutional lenders could be considered the powerhouse … Read More
Even given the tech sector’s nearly universal drive to make sure that no American with a smartphone will ever be hungry again, Square’s acquisition of food delivery service Caviar last summer seemed like something of a puzzler. Square’s main corporate MO had been centered around payments thus far – and food delivery seemed a little far afield. However, Square’s commitment to competing in the food delivery space has only grown since the Caviar acquisition, and … Read More
