Proper Legal Agreements in Payments - The Pitfalls of Templates
The payments systems are a series of agreements between participants, including payment authorizations. These agreements are legal, binding contracts. If agreements are not clear and properly assembled they can cause a variety of problems, from trivial to severe. As payments become more complicated and faster, and new payment types and new forms of processing emerge, it is critical to have properly assembled agreements that are unique to the requirements of your company and those of your partners and customers.

The pitfalls of template agreements are many. Skimping on the cost of preparing proper agreements can result in costly litigation, loses and potentially regulatory action.

This session will talk about the legal flow of agreements in payments between participants; the pitfalls of using templates that misrepresent your actual role and processes; and other considerations for your agreements. Join the TPPPA and our Legal and Regulatory Counsel Troutman Sanders in this important and timely discussion.

What's the Difference Between a Payment Processor and a Money Transmitter?
While both Payment Processors and Money Transmitters both process payments, the about where the similarity ends. The difference between these two types of companies is great. Unfortunately, they are often collapsed into a single category, particularly related to state money transmitter licensing requirements, which has created unintended consequences. Join the TPPPA and our Legal and Regulatory Counsel Troutman Sanders as we distinguish how payment processors are different from money transmitters. We will also discuss efforts to distinguish the two in the crazy matrix of 49 state's money transmitter licensing laws.
