As a MAG merchant member, there are many opportunities to advance your payments career and expand your knowledge through our professional development resources. Do you lead a team? Use our resources to amplify your team’s performance and build the momentum to move your business forward!


Stay on top of the latest industry trends and developments by following Payments News and subscribing to MAG Insights. These digital publications feature thought leadership articles, sponsor spotlights, and updates directly relevant to payments professionals.


The MAG Learning Center gives you exclusive access to an expanding catalog of on-demand eLearning, recordings from past webinars and conferences, industry publications, member surveys, white papers, best practice guides, presentation archives, and additional tools to help you educate yourself, and your team… anywhere, on any device. You can also register for monthly live webinars presented by industry leaders and subject matter experts. Check the MAG website often as new webinars are regularly added to the calendar.


Join a Special Interest Group (SIG) to delve deeper into issues within your vertical and learn from the experiences of peer merchants. SIGs foster valuable connections and idea-sharing with others facing potentially similar challenges.

The MAG brings together merchants from all different verticals to collaborate and share knowledge on hot topics in the payments industry. Utilize our Member and Sponsor Directory to meet your counterparts and service providers to collaborate and engage around real-world problems in payments acceptance.


Volunteering for a Committee or Community of Practice is a great way to develop leadership skills while helping shape the future of payments. Your contributions can expand your network and resume. And on that note, the MAG’s career page contains open payments positions at member and sponsor companies. Finding and promoting the right people to take on these important functions is critical in building a successful payments strategy for your organization. Utilize your membership benefits to learn more about other payments roles or find your next team member by submitting a request to post your open position on our site. You can even find job profile templates as a MAG member-only resource for recruiting, hiring, and retention needs.

As a leading global payments association, the MAG is committed to providing various pathways for continuing professional enrichment. We encourage you to make the most of these development resources as part of your membership.
