Do market research. Decide where you’ll be registering your new business, which legislation is in place there, and would you be able to handle complying with it. It’s better to have a highly qualified lawyer with strong market knowledge to help you set up a company following local regulations. Evaluate the demand level for payment services in your geography and examine competitors’ offerings.
