Discouraged by Banks, Small Merchants Increasingly Turn to PFs for Capital

In a move that builds on the payment facilitator model’s strengths in this challenging market, London-based Paysafe announced a relationship with lender IOU Financial last week. The agreement expands the global PF’s offerings beyond payment processing into an area it says will help it fuel the growth of North American small businesses.
