Policy

Our policy work allows our members to express their views and get their voices heard on the topics that matter. Through our connections and relationship with the industry’s key stakeholders, we collaborate to create a cohesive environment.

Our Approach to Policy

We work closely with a number of stakeholders to ensure the voice of the payments sector is well represented. 

From regulators such as the Bank of England, Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) and Payments Systems Regulator (PSR), government departments including HM Treasury and The Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport (DCMS), All-Party Parliamentary Groups (APPGs), other parliamentary groups and committees, OBL, CMA and our fellow industry associations including the UK Forum for Digital Currencies.

Our members reflect the entire value chain, allowing us to provide a balanced and unbiased view where needed. Which is why our members are often invited to participate in workshops and consultations. 

Inspired by our community values – we are open, dynamic, inclusive, influential, sustainable and collaborative – we aim to shape policy developments in the UK and other jurisdictions through our external (strategic Projects and tactical Sprints) and internal policies, applying a consistent, transparent and democratic process with the highest level of governance and best practice of project management.

Membership

Are you a member of The Payments Association?

Member benefits include free tickets, discounts to more tickets, elevated brand visibility and more. Sign in to book tickets and find out more.

Welcome

Log in to access complimentary passes or discounts and access exclusive content as part of your membership. An auto-login link will be sent directly to your email.

Having trouble signing?

We use an auto-login link to ensure optimum security for your members hub. Simply enter your professional work e-mail address into the input area and you’ll receive a link to directly access your account.

First things first

Have you set up your Member account yet? If not, click here to do so.

Still not receiving your auto-login link?

Instead of using passwords, we e-mail you a link to log in to the site. This allows us to automatically verify you and apply member benefits based on your e-mail domain name.

Please click the button below which relates to the issue you’re having.

I didn't receive an e-mail

Tip: Check your spam

Sometimes our e-mails end up in spam. Make sure to check your spam folder for e-mails from The Payments Association

Tip: Check “other” tabs

Most modern e-mail clients now separate e-mails into different tabs. For example, Outlook has an “Other” tab, and Gmail has tabs for different types of e-mails, such as promotional.

Tip: Click the link within 60 minutes

For security reasons the link will expire after 60 minutes. Try submitting the login form again and wait a few seconds for the e-mail to arrive.

Tip: Only click once

The link will only work one time – once it’s been clicked, the link won’t log you in again. Instead, you’ll need to go back to the login screen and generate a new link.

Tip: Delete old login e-mails

Make sure you’re clicking the link on the most recent e-mail that’s been sent to you. We recommend deleting the e-mail once you’ve clicked the link.

Tip: Check your security policies

Some security systems will automatically click on links in e-mails to check for phishing, malware, viruses and other malicious threats. If these have been clicked, it won’t work when you try to click on the link.

Need to change your e-mail address?

For security reasons, e-mail address changes can only be complete by your Member Engagement Manager. Please contact the team directly for further help.
