Nationwide Payment System Survey

The Clearing House Payments Authority (TCHPA) is one of eleven payments associations working together to ensure members are prepared for the continued evolution of payments. With this in mind, TCHPA is taking part in a national study to learn more about the current and future payments space. In order to assemble the most comprehensive picture of this evolving market, we are asking you, our members, to participate in a 10 minute online study designed to capture your thoughts about payments. By participating in this survey, your organization may elect to receive an early copy of the study results. The questionnaire will be electronically submitted to Discida, our third-party research partner for analysis.
