Feb. 21, 2012 - PRLog -- Report data were obtained from various public and syndicated data sources, trade associations and publications, business journals, company literature, investment reports, and industry interviews. In most cases, the market data span the 2007-2011 period (2011 is estimated) with forecasts for 2012-2016. The key market statistic for commercial payment cards is expressed in terms of total purchase volume. The figures are primarily "dollar volume" figures published by the major associations, which consist predominantly of purchase volume (transactions for goods and services), but also include some cash volume (e.g. balance transfers, cash advances), particularly for small business cards. Packaged Facts' reasoning is that the vast majority of all "dollar volume" in the commercial payment space consists mostly of purchase volume, and therefore is more comparable to purchase volume within the overall payment card market. Figures from Visa and Discover are purchase volume only unless otherwise indicated, while American Express and MasterCard figures are "billed business" and "gross dollar volume," respectively.

Volume figures were obtained primarily from associations (e.g., Visa, MasterCard) and issuer (e.g. American Express, various major banks) SEC filings, annual and quarterly reports, supplemental operational publications, and press releases. In some cases, dollar volume figures as well as other statistics were derived from other published metrics.

While the standard metric for commercial electronic payment is number of transactions, Packaged Facts provides estimates of dollar volume to show the value of the total U.S. commercial payment market. Data for electronic payments were taken from published statistics and press releases at the electronic payments association,
