OPEN BANKING VENDORS
Clear Junction has developed a range of solutions that enable open banking vendors to overcome many of the challenges they face. By utilising Clear Junction’s solutions, open banking vendors can offer merchant services that truly compete with card acquiring.
Payment Initiation Service (PIS) licences are typically very restrictive and do not allow open banking providers to hold merchant funds. However, by partnering with Clear Junction, open banking vendors can complement their own solutions, making their products and services more enriched and holistic.
Our e-money solution means open banking providers can approach merchants and simultaneously offer them open banking technology and settlement and collection accounts. In this model, Clear Junction remains behind the scenes and doesn’t face the merchants directly leaving that to the open banking vendors.
