  • Norbra next-generation payment orchestration layer for e-commerce businesses, will incorporate Plaid’s open banking payment initiation technology to add open banking payments as a payment option at checkout.
  • Finally, GlobePay a PSP that offers cross-border online payments, will now offer open bank payments as an option for businesses to receive payments, right next to WeChat Pay and Alipay.

Expanding our geographic coverage

In addition to incorporating PIS into the digital financial ecosystem, they are building geographic coverage to offer open bank payment and data services across Europe. They recently added open banking payment capabilities for Spain and Poland and data connectivity for Germany.

They are always looking for new ways to meet local needs and offer the paid journeys people are already used to as they transition to digital finance. As such, in Spain, they offer an app-to-app experience, where users are automatically redirected to their mobile banking app to authenticate and authorize access to their account details or to initiate payments from the account. This creates a seamless customer experience and helps increase conversion on mobile streams.
