Understanding an instant bank payment
An instant bank payment is a new type of payment method, powered by open banking. It involves moving funds from one bank account to another without using a card or third party payment network. It’s easier than traditional bank transfers and more secure than card payments.
What is open banking?
Open banking became UK law in 2018. It requires banks to give access to a client's financial data, with their consent. Its goal is to give more transparency and control over their money. It enables one to securely connect to their bank and authorise an instant bank transfer to their account, instead of using a card or third party provider.
How secure are instant bank transfers?
Instant bank transfers are extremely safe. Payments are authenticated directly with the client’s bank using a secure, read-only connection. Login credentials are never stored or shared.
