Open Banking

Introducing Instant Bank Transfer, the fast, secure & lower cost way to accept payments from your customers.

The new standard in payments 

Open Banking is the new way for consumers to pay. Customers pay by bank transfer, sending funds directly from their bank account to the merchant.  It is fast and secure, all with no cards and no data entry.

Using Nuapay’s Open Banking solution, merchants get all the features expected of a modern payment method. Refunds, recurring payments, instalment plans, and full reconciliations, are already part of our solution.


Fast and simple customer checkout with no card details to enter

Merchant receives money (and sends refunds) in real-time

Instalment plans & recurring payments with one click

Real-time webhooks to confirm payment status


Fully SCA compliant payment method, lowering your fraud rates

Consumers connect securely to their internet or mobile banking to make a payment

No credentials or account details disclosed to merchant, so no PCI DSS requirements.

How does Open Banking work?


Using Open Banking, customers initiate a payment to a merchant or corporate using their mobile banking App or online banking webportal, in exactly the same way that they would pay with bank transfer.  Funds are then transferred to the merchant immediately using the real-time banking rails.
