Welcome to PIF

The Prepaid International Forum (PIF) is a not-for-profit trade association representing the prepaid financial services sector. Driven by a belief that prepayment is a responsible way to pay for goods and services, and that consumers should be confident in the security of prepaid products and the money that is stored on their behalf, PIF advocates for policies and standards that protect and enhance the use of prepaid as a payment solution.

Established in 2006, PIF works closely with industry, regulators, government departments, consumer bodies and the media to promote understanding of prepaid as well as providing support and education to proponents of prepaid worldwide.

As a lawyer working in prepaid and emerging payments primarily in the US, my involvement in PIF has been critically important.  Not only does PIF provide high level networking opportunities with senior payments executives its legal and regulatory guidance is superb. I have learned so much and am able to keep on top of EU developments”
