Yapily, Yapily Variable Recurring Payments, Volume, Checkout Payments Platform, Ozone API, Financial Institutions, Regulatory, PSPs, Financial Services, UKYapily, the open banking platform today launched Yapily Variable Recurring Payments (VRP) to accelerate innovation across the open banking ecosystem.

VRP allows businesses and consumers to use open banking for recurring payments of varying amounts, without the need to re-authenticate every transaction. VRPs are a much-anticipated open banking solution that promises greater returns for merchants and a safer and convenient payments for end users. 

Ben Aier, VP of Product at Yapily, made a remark, saying, “This is a great example of how Yapily and open banking are helping to create a healthy payments ecosystem where there is value for every participant. We are proud to be breaking down the barriers to innovation in this space and meeting the evolving needs of banks, merchants, PSPs, businesses, and consumers alike.”

The one-click checkout payments platform, Volume will be using the Yapily VRP to enable its UK merchant customers to save costs, increase payment volumes, and provide a frictionless alternative to standing orders and direct debit payments over time.

“VRP has triggered the next wave of disruption at the checkout. It is the direct debit equivalent of open banking, except where the movement of money is quicker, cheaper, and the customer has more control. This has the potential to be transformative for any business,” said Simone Martinelli, Founder and CEO at Volume. “At Volume, we are on a mission to remove hidden fees at the online checkout for both consumers and merchants, and Yapily is helping us to turn that vision into a reality.”

Yapily has partnered with Ozone API to enable more participants within the open banking ecosystem to benefit from VRP. The partnership between Yapily and Ozone API will bring a solution for banks and financial institutions to go beyond minimum regulatory requirements and commercialise their APIs.

Huw Davies, Co-Founder and Chief Commercial Officer at Ozone API, commented: “We founded Ozone API when we saw how difficult, expensive, and time consuming it can be for banks and financial institutions to deliver high quality and standards-based APIs. Partnering with Yapily means we can now deliver the benefits of VRP to these firms, enabling them to build deeper customer relationships, reduce losses to payments fraud, and ultimately generate new revenue streams. Together with Yapily, we have everything a bank needs to switch on and monetise this opportunity. Now the CMA VRP for sweeping deadline has passed for the UK’s nine largest banks, it’s our mission to ensure that no bank gets left behind.”

“We have seen a positive response from industry to the implementation of sweeping, however, only when VRP APIs become more widely available will the truly innovative use cases for open banking be unlocked. This will not only enable better and fairer financial services for everyone, but will lead to increased adoption from both consumers and businesses. Now, more collaboration between banks, third-party providers, and policymakers is needed to ensure the transition from me-to-me to me-to-business payments materialises,” added Maria Palmieri, Director of Public Policy at Yapily.
