Join the MAG as a Sponsor

The Merchant Advisory Group (MAG) was founded in 2008 by a small visionary group of merchants in the payments field dedicated to driving positive change in payments through multi-stakeholder collaboration. The MAG represents 165 of the largest U.S. merchants which account for over $4.8 Trillion in annual sales at over 580,000 locations across the U.S. and online.

Testimonial

It is essential that all stakeholders across the payments spectrum meet to address issues that impact our respective industries…the MAG provides that forum. It is one of the few organizations where merchants and the payments industry collaborate on developing “best practices” and drive out inefficiencies in the payment ecosystem.

    Testimonials

    • As a long time member of the MAG, I can share that it has really evolved over time, and has never been stronger or more relevant. This is a truly unique merchant based organization focused on the payments space, bringing together marquee names in the merchant space with the many other constituents in the payment ecosystem. This is a terrific collaborative environment, where truly substantive learning, sharing and critical discussion takes place in a well structured, open setting. In this day and age, merchants are by definition, highly vested in payments, and this is a critical venue to connect to peers and industry participants.
