    We need to encourage additional platforms to widen choice for consumers.

Are you seriously suggesting that you'd assemble a list of Jazzjim-approved payment processors and use this to filter potential future suppliers, or the marginally more sane approach of reviewing preferred options at the time of evaluating a purchase?

    More choice is generally considered a good thing but do you have any evidence that there aren't enough players already in this particular space?

    But lay off the sarcasm it simply undermines your positive input and does nothing for your standing.
