P2P payments have become big business over the last ten years, but monetizing them remains a challenge. And fintechs like Cash App and Venmo have different avenues to monetization available to them than Zelle putting them on an uneven playing field that’s essentially left the firms pursuing different goals. Furthermore, the fintechs have greater technological capabilities and control of their services, offering them a different outlook than that of Zelle, which is at a crossroads as its stakeholders determine what they want it to be in the years to come.
