Embedded payments in the Nordics

According to an article from Nordic Fintech Magazine quoting a Worldpay study, there are two primary drivers of embedded finance and thus embedded payments: the spread of digitalisation and the desire to enhance control over the customer experience. Furthermore, the Covid pandemic sped up the evolution of embedded finance when businesses were forced to make decisions about how to accept payments and retain customers.

Moreover, according to Deloitte’s Data Ethics Consumer Research Report, the 25% of the Danish population say they’re willing to share their data and 22% of Swedes say they’re willing to share their data. Deloitte pointed at a significant different compared to 15% in Germany, and 19% in Italy.

The drive to advance digitisation in the Nordic banking system has taken another step forward through a plan headed by P27 Nordic Payments to create future digital infrastructure and platforms.

Partnerships such as the one between Neonomics and Worldline are building on the favorable infrastructure environment in the area. Michael Steinbach, Head of Global Business Line Financial Services at Worldline explained, in relation to the recent agreement, that Neonomics benefits from a robust unified bank API platform, with a technical set-up that supports Worldline’s need to work with partners that can offer secure services in the current regulatory environment. By working together, the two companies are quoted as aiming to make Open Banking ‘an even more pan-European offering that helps to streamline payments and enables access to banking account data.’
