“A robust environment of interoperability in payments systems benefits all participants in the payments ecosystem. End users, including consumers, merchants, governments, and other types of enterprises, find it easier to make and accept payments. Providers to these end users, including banks, networks, processors and other service providers, gain revenue from payments in interoperable systems that they may not be able to achieve with closed loop (or non-interoperable) systems. Interoperability in payments systems can also produce cost efficiencies and enable superior risk management.” - Interoperability in Electronic Payments: Lessons and Opportunities, by Carol Coye BensonScott Loftesness, 30 May 2013, http://www.cgap.org/publications/interoperability-electronic-payments-lessons-and-opportunities
