OpenPayd, Citizen, UK, FinTech, Europe, Real-Time Payments, BaaS, Open Banking, Instant Cardless  Payments, vIBANs, Payment ProcessingEuropean FinTech Citizen, has chosen embedded finance infrastructure provider, OpenPayd, as its real-time payments provider. The partnership will give the end-users of Citizen’s clients a simplified payments experience via OpenPayd’s BaaS platform, which offers plug-and-play banking and payments infrastructure through a single API.

Founded by former Worldpay CTO, James Neville, Citizen harnesses Open Banking to provide simple and secure instant cardless payments for merchants. The company is known for merchant acquiring and processing, bypassing traditional methods with no cards, no codes, and no apps. To deliver a better experience to its clients, Citizen needed an embedded finance infrastructure provider that could facilitate instant payouts and offer a greater global reach than other providers in the market.

Partnering with OpenPayd enables the FinTech to issue virtual International Bank Account Numbers (vIBANs) for every client and enable simpler payouts. OpenPayd’s infrastructure allows Citizen to issue clients with a corporate account and vIBANs that provide real-time data notifications as soon as money reaches their account. The partnership is already live and is available to Citizen’s multi-industry customer base.

“Through the collaboration of technical expertise, Citizen’s partnership with OpenPayd has opened up new product opportunities for us in even more locations across Europe,” said James Neville, CEO and co-founder of Citizen. “By offering a more expansive range of solutions to our customers, such as bank account creation and eWallet functionality, Citizen is more than a simple payment method – we are truly a payments ecosystem.”

“Working with Citizen is another example of how versatile our BaaS infrastructure is,” said Iana Dimitrova, CEO of OpenPayd. “Our broad and evolving technology suite can cater to any industry, any payment rail, anywhere. We’re looking forward to a long and successful relationship with Citizen, as they scale their offering and deliver a better payments experience to their clients.”
