Open banking solutions offer a new way to pay and get paid quickly and securely with minimal effort. Third party financial service providers use APIs to access financial data from banks and other financial houses meaning a reduced risk to consumers and businesses.
What Are the Benefits of Using Open Banking?
Using an open banking solution offers a range of unique benefits to both the customer and the business receiving payments.
Open Banking Offers Fast Payment Processing
Open banking offers an attractive payment solution to new and growing businesses by offering faster payment processing than standard payment practices. Customers pay directly for products and services in real time, with no card details necessary and no routine data entry. This agile banking system is a futureproof way to take payments and make payments quickly, helping your business scale at speed and keep your view of finances up to date at all times.
Open Banking is Secure
Open banking is a highly secure way for your business to take payments. Customers do not disclose their card details, account details or credentials to the merchant, meaning there are no PCI or DSS requirements. Instead they connect securely using their online bank portal or mobile banking app in the same way they would if making a bank transfer.
Open banking API endpoints have been thoroughly tested and are as secure as standard online banking, and only the end user can authorise transactions.
To be authorised by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), open banking API providers must pass stringent testing in order to be registered as being Strong Customer Authentication (SCA) compliant. Fully SCA compliant payment methods help to reduce fraud and chargebacks, as well as build trust with customers by showing you are serious about security.
Open Banking is Cost Effective
Open banking offers a simple, cost effective payment solution for one low cost fee and no additional charges. With Nuapay there is no charge on failed or declined transactions, and no chargebacks.
There are also no physical copies of bank statements, receipts or other financial paperwork, and fewer administrative costs helping to keep costs low.

Regular payments can be set up in one click, and webhooks confirm the customer’s payment status at every stage.
Open Banking Offers Innovative Financial Reporting & Money Management
Open banking APIs offer real time financial reporting tools and up to date payment records in a better way.
