Embedded payments - Frequently asked questions

  • Put simply, embedded payments allow businesses to integrate the payment process into their own platform, eliminating the need for their customers to embark on a complicated user journey that requires them to navigate to a separate payment gateway.

    As a result, payment becomes part of the native customer journey, taking on a sense of invisibility within the platform that enables a smooth and streamlined experience.

  • The engine of embedded payments is Application Programming Interface (or ‘API’) technology. In 2018 the implementation of Open Banking legislation, which enables banks and other financial institutions to securely share data with third parties, paved the way for the adoption of API technology to allow non-financial institutions to embed payment processes into their own platforms.

    APIs allow the customer’s financial information to flow between the platform and the relevant banks to make the payment process easy, fast, and frictionless.

  • For cost information and to answer any questions about API please complete the Enquiry form with your details and our payment specialist will be in touch to answer all your questions.

    Costs will be determined on a case-by-case basis allowing for our solutions to be tailored to each client’s individual needs.

  • At a high level, your developer contacts must be able to:

    • Setup security certificates.
    • Generate code to integrate APIs to your own systems. 
    • Troubleshoot network connectivity issues.

    Further details will be provided in technical guides for each product and our technical teams will be available to support your implementation.
