Merchant Awards

The NEW CNP Merchant Awards will be honoring the companies, programs and individual merchants that have distinguished themselves in the card not present space throughout the year. In conjunction with CNP Expo and Card Not Present®, the CNP Merchant Awards will be taking place on Wednesday, May 16 during CNP Expo.

The CNP Merchant Awards recognize merchants who are innovators and trend setters in the fraud and payments industry. Merchants are able to submit nominations for themselves or other merchants in the following categories: Fraud Innovation, Payments Innovation, Leadership and Management and International/Cross-border success. The nomination period for the CNP Merchant Awards is now closed.

How It Works

1. The Categories

Fraud Innovation

This category focuses on an innovative process or projects that lead to a reduction in fraud and chargebacks, but also optimized your business processes and may have resulted in a reduction of operation expenses.

Payments Innovation

This category focuses on an innovative process or project that led to better payments optimization. Results could include an increase in authorization rates, reduction in payment operating costs or new ways of utilizing data to better understand and optimize payment acceptance.

Leadership & Management

This category focuses on creative and unique methods of managing and leading a fraud or payments team. These could include: unique KPIs, solutions for hiring the right people, employee training programs, team member engagement and incentive programs. We want to recognize you for thinking outside the box and being a great leader for your fraud or payments team.

International/Cross-Border Success

This category focuses on your overall strategy to enter a new geographical region or to optimize the presence of payments in a region in which your company has already been accepting. These could include: creative or out-of-the box methods of implementing new payment methods, setting up currency presentation, optimizing conversion or authorizations in a region, etc. The process or system implemented can address one or all of these pain points.
