payabl., UK, FinTech, EMI,payabl. has received an Electronic Money Institution licence (EMI licence) from the Central Bank of Cyprus (CBC), which will be passported throughout the EEA. The licence will allow the PayTech company to significantly broaden and enhance its existing and new payment services in EEA.

payabl. has been in operation since 2011, now serving over 500 customers across Europe and the UK. It previously had a Payment Institution (PI) license, and the new EMI license strengthens the company’s offering in the EEA. It also marks a crucial step in payabl.’s European growth ambitions to offer game-changing financial solutions and revolutionise the paytech space.

Upon receipt of the license, payabl. will be able to provide new services to its merchant customers, allowing them to do more in a single platform and through one provider. These enhancements will allow merchants to benefit from an improved user experience in the existing e-banking platform.

The license enables greater agility and flexibility for payabl. to develop new solutions and roll out upgrades to meet changing customer needs.

Ugne Buraciene, Group CEO at payabl., said, “We are thrilled to have been granted an EMI license by the Central Bank of Cyprus, in addition to an FCA EMI license in the UK. Both mark a pivotal and strategic move for the business, underpinning our commitment to providing innovative financial services for the merchants in our network and expanding our global footprint.

“As we celebrate this huge achievement, the journey doesn’t end here. We are poised to continue on our growth trajectory, with ambitious plans to obtain an EMI license in the Netherlands and begin to explore other markets too. But our objectives extend beyond licenses. Fundamentally, we are dedicated to creating a diverse and skilled team, who are laser-focused on providing the highest calibre of services to our customers.”
