Tink expands its open banking services across Europe


European Open Banking Platform Tink launches its Payment Initiation Services (PIS) product in five new markets – the Netherlands, Norway, Estonia, Finland and Latvia, by Blog post on Wednesday April 27th.

The top line: As demand for seamless digital payment experiences continues to grow, Swedish company Tink is offering open bank payments in more locations across Europe.

The justification: Cards power the digital economy in the United Kingdom (UK) and the European Union, according to a PYMNTS study carried out in collaboration with Stripe. But merchants there don’t like paying card interchange fees. The advent of open banking payments is seen as a way to integrate cardless options into payment flows.

The details: Using Tink’s payment technology, users can quickly, easily and securely pay from an online merchant using their bank account credentials.

  • Improving the user experience for payments can give retailers a competitive advantage and banks the ability to enable payment choice.
  • The economics of the new business model can give retailers a way to create incentives for consumers to try and use.
  • APIs integrated with the payment service provider (PSP) or the merchant’s own ecosystem create a seamless customer experience.

Tink by the numbers:

  • Collaborates with more than 300 banks and FinTechs
  • Present in 18 European markets
  • Connects to over 250 million banking customers
  • ISO 27001 certified
