Open banking payments solutions
Open banking, also known as pay-by-bank, is revolutionising the way customers and consumers make payments. It allows individuals to pay directly by bank transfer from their bank to another business or organisation’s account.
The rising popularity of open banking payments
Open banking is gaining traction, with more than 1 in 9 UK consumers and 17% of small businesses utilising open banking services in 2023. This innovative approach to payments serves as an alternative to traditional methods such as cards, Direct Debits, and standing orders.

Cut costs and improve your cashflow
Our open banking payments transfer funds direct from the customer’s bank to your bank account, which means there’s no card networks or expensive card processing fees. There’s no charges on failed or declined transactions, no chargebacks, just real time payments.
Reduce fraud with safe, secure open banking payments
Unlike using cards, open banking payments offer a more secure way to pay. With open banking, customers verify each payment directly with their bank, which helps reduce fraud and unauthorised transactions. Plus, because open banking doesn't involve sharing banking data or processing card details, there's no need to worry about PCI DSS compliance costs.
Payment choice and flexibility
Whether your customers are making payments online by themselves or through a contact center, you can provide a pay by bank option. By offering multiple payment methods for online bills, invoices, or reminders in real time, you can increase successful transactions and decrease the number of abandoned carts.

When it comes to customers paying their rent, we want to be at forefront of payment technology to ensure they can make payments in as secure and straightforward way as possible. We’re working in partnership with the Access PaySuite team to add Open Banking to our suite of payment methods to further enhance our offer to customers.
Open Banking was the next step to ensure our payment channels are open to all and to create that payment culture with our customers. The fact that our transaction charges are lower and that the funds come to us quicker makes this move a no-brainer!”Karbon Homes
