In April 2022, Banking-as-a-Service provider Contis and UK-based Open Banking provider Ecospend have partnered with to deliver an instant account-to-account payment and withdrawal solution.

This will provide customers an alternative deposit method as well as instant withdrawals using a closed loop faster payments solution. The Open Banking solution will reportedly improve user experience, with members able to link bank accounts directly with their MrQ accounts through a streamlined but stringent verification process. This also supposedly reduces the level of fraud risk, as customers are required to access and verify a bank account, rather than just provide payment card details. Due to the increased speed of the payments, the offering will also provide MrQ with a real time view of its own settlement accounts.
