OpenPayd is a digital Banking-as-a-Service platform dedicated to improving and simplifying access to payments and banking. Its services can be integrated through a single API and are supported by a network of licensed payment processors across the UK, Europe, the U.S., and others.
The platform enables businesses such as marketplaces, PSPs, FinTech, and forex brokers to deploy digital banking capabilities to benefit from IBANs in multiple currencies, access local and international payment networks, forex conversion, and card processing capabilities. The services can be integrated seamlessly into businesses’ technology as a white-label offering.
The licensing network of the company is somewhat opaque, so it is not possible to tell exactly which of the subsidiaries owns a license in which regulatory regime.
