eCommerce in Austria … and around the World
Weil er über Internationalisierung spricht – hat er uns doch glatt seinen Teaser und Kurz-Vita standesgemäß auf englisch geschickt.
Jens Bader über Internationalisierung im eCommerce
The level of complexity is rising. There really is no movement away from the country-by-country licensing model in gambling. They all have their own reasons for doing what they are doing. There is no consensus at an EU level. I have sat in on some European Commission meetings where they have brought regulators, operators and others into focus to discuss some issue. But they can’t even agree over the terms of the discussion. The discussion are going nowhere. The local approach suits the gambling regualtors, whereas in the financial services world the global/regional approach is working. So there is a conflict there (between the two regulatory approaches).
Just look at mobile. I can use my phone in any given territory, but when it comes to gambling I can’t deposit in some places, for various reasons. I can’t use the app.
The consumer gets confused. It’s incredibly difficult today. It can leave payment companies on the wrong side of the customer experience. They can use social media to express their frustrations. Our clients can lose a customer, and we can get a bad press. That can happen because of regulations.
This is all consumer-driven.
