+# The W3C Web Payments Interest Group
-Web Payments Interest Group
+The mission of the Web Payments Interest Group, part of the 
+[Web Payments Activity][WPIG], is to provide a forum for Web Payments technical 
+discussions to identify use cases and requirements for existing and/or new 
+specifications to ease payments on the Web for users (payers) and merchants 
+(payees), and to establish a common ground for payment service providers on 
+the Web Platform. 
+The overall objective of this group is to identify and leverage the conditions 
+for greater uptake and wider use of Web Payments through the identification of 
+standardization needs to increase interoperability between the different 
+stakeholders and the different payment methods.
