Enables payment innovation and choice

Consumers can check account balances before making purchases, and pay using any bank account with available funds. Transactions are authenticated by the consumer’s trusted bank and/or device, and tokenized through EMV-like capabilities so their account details are never exposed.

Merchants receive immediate receipt of funds with reduced risk of failure or chargebacks.

Pay by Account positions financial institutions at the centre of the payment experience, offering their customers additional choice about how they pay. 

Pay by Account also supports bill payments, sitting between banks and billers to facilitate payment and non-payment messages through the banks’ existing online and mobile banking apps.
