WIRED’s Consulting division and J.P. Morgan Payments have announced they are bolstering their long term creative partnership with the launch of the second volume of print magazine Payments Unbound at Shop Talk in Las Vegas this week.

Building on the success of the first volume, WIRED Consulting and J.P. Morgan Payments say they have doubled both the pagination and tripled the print run of the magazine, which now includes more features, infographics, contributors and leading voices. Inside, readers will find insights from a broad range of organisations such as ABInBev, Cigna, Levi’s, Macy’s, the European Space Agency, Lockheed Martin and more.

Emma Cowdray, head of strategic projects at WIRED Consulting, said: “The first volume of Payments Unbound demonstrated a clear demand for incisive insights into the future of payments. With the first publication receiving such a positive reception, we wanted to build on this success and bolster our strategic partnership with J.P. Morgan Payments. Doubling the scale of the second volume has given us the capacity to bring even more of J.P. Morgan and WIRED’s future-forecasting thought leadership to the fore, uncovering the ways in which the payments revolution will impact our world – especially in commerce.”

The second volume of Payments Unbound will focus on the future of commerce. With articles covering everything from the secrets of re-commerce through to the future of Marketplaces, to ‘paying by brainwave’, plus deep dives into the emerging Telehealth Economy, how we could transact in Space and trends from across the Asia-Pacific region, this new issue will put readers at the cutting edge of the Payments Industry.

Alongside a physical magazine, both volumes of the publication are available digitally on J.P along with an exclusive immersive version of the WIRED feature on payments innovation in space can be found on

Dustin Sedgwick, J.P. Morgan Payments CMO: “We’re proud to continue working with the WIRED Consulting team to scale this breakthrough form of thought leadership on behalf of the industry. The commerce ecosystem has never been more exciting for businesses of all sizes and we see Payments Unbound Volume 2 working to challenge, inspire and entertain as we supercharge our innovation on powerful and seamless user experiences across all aspects of the Payments landscape.”

Payments Unbound Vol.2 is the second output of a long term and strategic collaboration between J.P Morgan Paymentse and WIRED Consulting - a division of WIRED that brings WIRED’s vast level of knowledge, expertise and network to brands and organisations.
