Wednesday 8 May 2024 12:01 CET | News

Banked and National Australia Bank (NAB) have partnered to accelerate the number of Australian merchants adopting and integrating A2A payments solutions. 

According to the announcement, the partnership aims to boost the use of ‘Pay by Bank’ technology – using Australian Payments Plus’ (AP+) PayTo services - making it easier for merchants to give Australians more choice and control in the way they pay. 

Pay by Bank capability will enable merchants to send PayTo Agreements to their customers and initiate payments and refunds according to their PayTo agreements, addressing a range of scenarios for merchants such as online payments, scheduled recurring payments with fixed or variable amounts, and split payment amounts.
