CNP Virtual Summit Series 2020

Merchant on a Conference CallWith the 2020 CNP Summit, and several other upcoming industry events, being officially postponed (see official announcement), we shifted much of the content we had planned for the 2020 CNP Summit into a virtual format with our CNP Virtual Summit Series.

The CNP Virtual Summit Series included...

  • Merchant-only Meet-Ups (Each Tuesday at 2PM ET)
  • Educational Sessions (Each Wednesday at 2PM ET)
  • Virtual Solutions Hall

Virtual Merchant-Only Meet-Ups

Our Merchant-Only Meet-Ups were facilitated by fraud & payments expert Karisse Hendrick and held each Tuesday from 2PM - 3PM ET (11AM PT) beginning April 14. These meet-ups are designed to allow our merchants to experience the collaborative spirit of our CNP Summit "Fireside Chats" in a virtual format. All participants were rigorously vetted to ensure that only merchants are present. This enabled merchants to feel secure expressing their specific challenges and–most importantly–gain actionable insights from other merchants who have tackled similar issues. This is truly some of the best CNP Summit has to offer; a place where merchants can learn what really works, what doesn't, and what threats are emerging right now and in the months ahead.

The individual topics:

  • User-Generated Content Abuse
  • Payment Acceptance & Optimization
  • Women in CNP Fraud & Payments
  • Chargeback Strategy & Management
  • Digital Goods Merchant Fraud Issues
  • Physical Goods Merchant Fraud Issues

“Thank you for hosting such an amazing event. I learned a lot from it, and it was so nice to meet everyone that participated!” - Ning Ding, Founder of TagHawk, Inc.

*Please Note: Media is not permitted to participate in the Virtual Merchant-Only Meet-Ups, in order to maintain confidentiality and security in these conversations.


Virtual Educational Series

Our Virtual Education Series, facilitated by Card Not Present Editor-in-Chief DJ Murphy, featured expert panelists discussing specific fraud, payments and risk management challenges we all need to look out for this year. The Virtual Summit Series sessions was held each Wednesday from 2 - 3PM ET (11AM PT) beginning April 8 and featured experts from our pool of merchant panelists and speakers, as well as our community of solution providers & consultants. You can check out the rebroadcasts below.



"I have attended many CNP trade shows. Thank you for the webinar today. The content was great - poignant and actionable. Thanks for all you guys do. We are a consulting and brokerage company for all thing relating to payment acceptance. I consistently reference knowledge we have gained through CNP."
- Kelly Keesee, Owner & Founder, The Payment Boutique
