Abstract

Electronic payments (e-payments) occur whenever payment instructions, initiated by a device such as a computer or mobile phone, enter a payments system via the Internet or any other telecommunications network. E-payments can be assisted by non-banking channels. They enhance the speed, efficiency and safety of payments. However, to reap all such benefits, e-payments require new legal and regulatory solutions to accommodate both the promise and risks inherent in the quickening pace of development. This Guide sets out a general framework addressing e-payment systems in a broad international/cross-border context, as well as addresses regulatory principles, risk of legal uncertainty and e-payments services under international trade law.
