Ditto Bank, the new French bank dedicated to customers without borders, selects Bankable to provide API access to the UK Faster Payment Scheme

Ditto Bank, “the Bank that travels with you”, is a new generation French bank with global ambitions that offers a unique multi-currency model. Ditto Bank holds its own banking license and manages to combine the reliability of a bank with the flexibility of a FinTech. Designed for those who need access to multiple currencies on a regular basis (frequent travellers, expatriates, online shoppers, etc), Ditto Bank customers can use their app to open current accounts in different currencies, manage their money, make transfers and complete foreign exchange transactions, all from a mobile app created for and with the customer, who always remains at the centre of a seamless experience.

Ditto Bank was launched in Paris on February 15, 2018. Two weeks after the launch, Bankable is selected to provide Ditto with real time API access to the UK Faster Payment scheme. This allows every Ditto customer to have a UK Sort Code and Account Number from which they can send and receive GBP payments to and from other UK bank accounts. A step in the right direction to help Ditto towards their ambition of becoming a borderless bank.

“We chose Bankable among other candidates to access UK Faster payment via API, says Sylvain Pignet, founder and CEO of Ditto Bank. We are committed to promote and leverage open banking. Bankable’s prices were competitive but we also felt both organisations were culturally aligned. This partnership with Bankable is a first step, other joint projects may follow.”

Bankable’s proprietary API based “Banking as a Service” platform provides turnkey payment solutions with account/card issuance and management, transaction processing, as well as compliance and ancillary services. Apart from access to the UK Faster Payment scheme, Bankable is currently also providing access to SWIFT, SEPA STEP2, TARGET2 and soon SEPA Instant Payments. Bankable’s platform enables customers to focus on their brand, distribution and client acquisition instead of reinventing the “infrastructure wheel”. With accelerated time to market and faster revenue generation, Bankable customers increase the value and attractiveness of their business.

“We are very excited to partner with Ditto Bank, says Eric Mouilleron, founder and CEO of Bankable. Ditto has an original vision, a strong management team and prestigious financial backers (UAE Exchange and Travelex). Travelex has always been an inspiration for me. Prior to founding Ditto, Sylvain Pignet was Group Company Secretary of Travelex Group, working along Lloyd Dorfman, CBE, Travelex Group founder, to build the world’s largest retailer of foreign exchange. Given Sylvain’s vision and track record and the quality of Ditto’s management team and backers, we believe that Ditto Bank will become a dominant player.”

Bankable partners with Starling Bank to provide UK Agency Banking access to its clients

Money 2020, Copenhagen, June 28, 2017 –

Bankable signed a direct strategic partnership with Starling Bank, one of the UK’s leading challenger banks, to provide real-time Faster Payments.

Bankable will integrate its Banking as a Service platform with Starling’s state of the art API set.

Bankable’s proprietary API based Banking as a Service platform provides turnkey payment solutions with account / card issuance and management, transaction processing, as well as compliance and ancillary services. The partnership will allow clients to send and receive Faster Payments all in real-time through Starlings API.

The Bankable-Starling Bank partnership complements Bankable’s existing relationship with Arkea Business Service providing access to Step 2 and Target 2 Euro clearing systems. This partnership will provide a turnkey solution for ambitious cross-border Challenger Bank initiatives originated by Incumbents or FinTechs. Our clients will be able to focus on their brand, distribution and client acquisition instead of reinventing the “infrastructure wheel”, in turn translating to accelerated time to market.

Bankable has successfully delivered projects for demanding Tier-1 banks and FinTechs for the last six years. Bankable’s speedy implementation approach enables clients to generate revenues faster, increasing their valuation and attractiveness.

By promoting pilot-based-experimentation, Bankable allows its customers to quickly launch, test and validate a new service before moving towards a seamless deployment.

This partnership will allow their customers to access the Faster Payments infrastructure and to complete payments all in real-time. Bankable have a strong presence within the European banking market with their innovative payment solutions enabling a complete Banking as a Service model. We believe this partnership will continue to improve the experience for customers and continue to drive innovation within the financial ecosystem”.

Eric Mouilleron, Bankable’s CEO and founder commented: “We have followed Starling Bank since their inception. We decided to partner with Starling Bank immediately after they became the 13th UK Faster Payment member in January 2017. Starling Bank is different from other Challenger Banks as they started by building a strong back end and are led by former bankers who have contributed to different banking innovation waves over the last 30 years along a strong diverse team. We are excited to partner with a technology focused and client centric Bank who delivers real-time access to payment schemes, as opposed to the file-based systems made available by Incumbent Banks.”

Arkéa Banking Services will provide Bankable’s API banking Platform as a Service access to Euro payment rails – for both retail payments and real-time large-value payments.

Over the years, we have fostered mutual respect between our two organisations as we both provide white-label infrastructure solutions. Arkea Banking Services connects our API banking platform to Euro payment rails both for retail payments (SEPA credit transfers and direct debits via STEP2) and real time large-value payments (via TARGET 2) engines. As a team, we are now changing speed to welcome and serve the most ambitious FinTech or Incumbents to leverage both Bankable and Arkea Banking Services platforms.”
