What is Open Banking?

Pay By Bank is powered by open banking, the process of banks and other financial institutions opening up data for anyone who consents to allow the access, use, and sharing of their details. The goal is to improve financial services and increase transparency for customers and was introduced as part of the Payment Services Direct (PSD2). As a result, new applications and payment methods are being developed for businesses and customers alike.

How Popular Is It?

As of 2023, over 1 in 9 Brits use Open Banking services as Open Banking payments reach record high. The first six months of 2023 also saw double the volume of payments compared with the first six months of 2022. A record 9.7m payments were made in June 2023, an increase of 88% on the same month in 2022.
