We’ve all been there. Typing out that never-ending string of numbers and letters, double-checking if we’ve got it right, and wondering if there’s a better way to pay. Spoiler alert: there is.
Say goodbye to tedious manual bank transfers. Things are getting a lot easier thanks to changing payer expectations and wider adoption of open banking payments.
Merchants don’t need to send their bank details in a PDF, asking customers to set them up as a payee and then complete payment. Now, it’s all automated. From a secure, branded checkout, payers then simply authorise the payment via their mobile banking app. Simple, quick and seamless.October 23, 2023 Prommt reports 100 percent increase in open banking adoption rates

The adoption of Prommt’s Pay by Bank solution has more than doubled, with businesses processing tens of millions per month through open banking across the UK and Ireland, and many implementing it as their default payment method.
While card remains and will continue to remain an important payment method, there is a growing trend of processing higher-value transactions via Pay by Bank. This solution powered by Prommt eliminates the need to share IBANs and account numbers and the friction associated with that payer experience, often a key driver for late payments.
Commenting on the doubling in demand for open banking services, Donal McGuinness, CEO of Prommt said, “We’ve seamlessly integrated Card and Open Banking payments, creating a powerful synergy that not only drives profitability for our users but also elevates the overall payment experience for payers. Demand has soared for open banking solutions and its ability to empower companies to achieve faster payments with reduced costs.”October 23, 2023 Prommt reports 100 percent increase in open banking adoption rates
