Yobota announced a partnership with Tranch, a BNPL startup platform that delivers flexible payments to fast-growing businesses. With the help of Yobota’s flexible architecture and API-first capabilities, Tranch can meet the demands of even the most complex customer journeys in the UK.

Co-founder and CEO of Tranch, Philip Kelvin, said: “We’re delighted to work with Yobota, the flexible modularity of the platform gives us the freedom and support to build exactly the products we need, with a fraction of the usual development work.”

By embedding in the sales journeys of SaaS sellers and other service providers, Tranch allows businesses to spread any expense multiple times and manage it all from one convenient place. Its one-stop platform equips organisations with the solutions they need to prioritise spending on growth without ever compromising the tools they need. 

Using the ‘Pay with Tranch’ payment method, suppliers can offer their end-customers the power to choose how they spread out expenses and a more flexible way to pay for contracts worth £10,000 to £250,000 while ensuring that they are paid upfront, faster.

The Yobota Platform already powers multiple brands for Chetwood Financial, one of the UK’s challenger banks, making it a tried and tested solution in a highly regulated environment. Recently, IBS Intelligence reported that Chetwood Financial (Chetwood) had announced the acquisition of core banking provider Yobota to extend Chetwood’s Banking-as-a-Service (BaaS) capabilities.

Head of Commercial, Yobota, Ion Fratiloiu said: “The Yobota team is thrilled to celebrate the launch of Tranch on our core banking platform for their UK business, with this announcement marking the beginning of a powerful partnership and an important step towards setting a B2B e-commerce revolution in motion. Historically, the payment experience for large expenses has been a huge hindrance for the growth of countless firms, so it is fantastic to see that Tranch is stepping up to the task of bringing BNPL to a much wider pool of businesses with Yobota at its side.

“The success of Tranch so far is an important milestone for Yobota, too. If further evidence was needed, it proves the power of harnessing API connectivity, allowing firms to address niche market needs and deliver exactly the solution that customers deserve. We are delighted to be supporting the ambitions of another innovative UK company.”

The announcement follows the news, which IBS Intelligence also reported that Tranch had raised £3.5 million in pre-seed equity and debt funding to bring payment flexibility to a broader pool of B2B customers.
