Who We Are

The Digital Commerce Alliance (DCA) is the premier, multi-industry trade association advancing the future of commerce through collaboration, education and standards in card-linking, mobile wallets and financial data.

DCA was launched from the CardLinx Association which was founded in 2014 with the mission to promote online-to-offline (O2O) commerce and card-linking worldwide. The CardLinx Association, now known as the CardLinx Forum, is now one of three divisions of the Digital Commerce Alliance. The other divisions are the Mobile Wallet Forum and the Financial Data Forum.

Board of Directors

Trade for Good

The Digital Commerce Alliance’s motto is Trade for Good. These three simple words sum up the mission of our non-profit trade association: DCA drives the future of trade and commerce, by making it a more socially positive, more friction-free experience for all parties, including consumers.

We believe that trade can be one of the most powerful forces for good. Our aim is to help merchants, card issuers, payment companies, fin-tech organizations, and consumers benefit in multiple ways from innovation enabled by digital commerce technology.

Members are empowered by DCA—and its 3 divisions, the CardLinx Forum, the Mobile Wallet Forum and the Financial Data Forum—to do all they can to make every aspect of trade good for both buyers and sellers, as well as their companies and the communities they serve.
