2018 heralds a new challenge .... dreamt up some time ago but never fully realised...to work hard for the UK markets industry to build a digital platform that benefits markets and traders.  

Back in 2016, in my previous role as Campaign Coordinator for the Love Your Local Market, I found myself alongside a panel of experts at a Contactless Digital Conference, where I was asked "what the markets industry is doing to work with the financial services sector to get the best possible deal for mobile, event and market traders".  One of my fellow panelists, Derek Stewart who's company Paysme has already worked out this solution for the licenced hackney carriage trade, suggested we may be able to achieve the same thing for the market industry...and in March 2018, Marketti will go live under the Paysme umbrella.

Both an app and desktop service, Marketti (standing for Markets, Traders and Independents) will allow people to find markets, give market traders a free m-commerce site, allow market traders to take contactless and card payments, including through Apple and Android Pay, promote events and offers and facilitate Click and Collect and Loyalty schemes.

From our offices at the Barclays Fintech building in Shoreditch, we are aiming to host a series of events in 2018, inviting market officers and organisers along to ensure what we deliver is fit for purpose and exactly what the industry needs.  We look forward to seeing you soon.
