Editorial Guidelines

Individuals and organisations are welcome to submit one free article (per annum) to PaymentEye on the following conditions:

Articles must have a payments focus and provide insight relevant to PaymentEye subscribers.

This includes submissions focussing on sectors ranging from the following:

  • Banks and banking technology
  • Card issuers and payment networks
  • POS hardware/software developers and payment service providers
  • Start-ups such as mobile wallets, mobile POS, e-commerce
  • Sectors directly relating to payment innovation such as apps, social media and security

Submissions that explore in-depth specific payment methods/trends such as contactless and mobile services or how/why people pay the way they do are also welcome.

Expression of views and arguments is encouraged, but PaymentEye also welcomes articles that focus on factual content that informs readers about changes and developments in payments technology.

Articles should be between 1000-1500 words in length and those wanting to become contributing writers, may submit 800 word articles that express the author’s personal opinion.

Articles should be submitted in Word document format only (not PDF format). Graphics and tabular information can be submitted in all usual formats but should be of high quality. An author photograph, brief biography and a company logo must be provided in addition to contact details.

Submissions must be unique to PaymentEye having not been published elsewhere prior. Freedom to re-publish after PaymentEye is permitted but content must carry the caveat ‘first published on PaymentEye’ in the footer.

Advertorial and any other unwarranted reference to the services or capabilities of the author’s organisation or company are not permitted in articles and will be removed.

Please ask a colleague to re-read your article before submission as this can minimise errors and reduce the need for re-drafting or editing.

Submission is not a guarantee of publication. PaymentEye reserves the final right on whether to publish, regardless of any other arrangements that may exist.

PaymentEye reserves the right, at its absolute discretion, to edit articles submitted for reasons including, but not limited to, style, accuracy, length and legal compliance. This editing may include the addition of new copy such as headlines, sub-headings, captions and pull-quotes. By submitting content to PaymentEye you are assigning all right to PaymentEye to publish the content in any medium, any language and any territory, providing you are identified as the author of that content.

You accept full responsibility for any errors or omissions in your content and you understand that PaymentEye will accept no liability, legal or otherwise, on your behalf. PaymentEye cannot guarantee a specific date or time of publication. Articles are submitted on the basis that they are available for publication at once.

 

Please email submissions for consideration to editorial@paymenteye.com with ‘Editorial submission’ in the subject line.

The body of the email should contain a quick overview of the proposed article, followed by a more detailed bullet point break down.
