The DRF Is World-Class CNP Education


For more than two decades, the DRF has been the leading source for card not present payments education. The DRF provides an educational environment that gives merchants relevant insight into current CNP rules, regulations and processes.

Some of the largest merchants in the world look to the DRF for best practices on transaction processing, reducing fraud, and handling chargebacks. A single technique or idea learned from a DRF merchant can generate tens of thousands, and in some cases millions, of dollars in bottom-line impact.




Annual Event


The DRF’s annual event provides a unique venue for payment industry peers to meet and to share practical solutions that address the unique challenges
facing the industry.  The networking opportunities with knowledgeable payments professionals are endless.  Structured sessions, as well as casual chats in the hall between sessions, yield many opportunities to discuss operational successes in a dynamic setting.  The DRF is not about sales and marketing activities and there is no expo or exhibit hall.  Our event is the only industry gathering that is 100% focused on payments education.

The DRF gives you front row access to speeches and presentations of the influential movers and shakers in the CNP field.
