Payhawk partners with Yapily

Tuesday 8 August 2023 11:19 CET | News

Payhawk, a spend management platform, has partnered with Yapily, an Open Banking API, to create an instant payment experience for finance teams when upgrading their Payhawk wallets.

Through this collaboration and with the benefits of Open Banking, Payhawk aims to streamline the payment process by eliminating lengthy, manual payment steps that could cause user friction and lead to unnecessary cash flow uncertainty for businesses.

This partnership with Yapily, rolled out in key markets such as the UK, France, Spain, Portugal, and the Benelux region, enables Payhawk to offer its customers the ability to link one or more bank accounts from a network of over 2,000 banks and institutions across dozens of countries. Through this integration, users gain the ability to top up their debit accounts as well as repay credit accounts from a linked bank account.

Yapily's bank coverage and single API integration have allowed Payhawk to appeal to both new and existing customers in their core markets. The Linked Account top-up feature facilitates quick platform setup for customers and helps ensure adequate cash flow for spending requirements. Additionally, Pawhawk users now have the ability to track deposits into the platform, ensuring transparency and reducing the risk of duplicate transactions. This added aspect of control and visibility will enable businesses to uphold good governance practices over their spending. Payhawk’s main objective is to offer customers across Europe a convenient way to top up money on a continuous basis via the platform after linking a bank account once, aligning with their strategy to reduce reliance on account funding through manual deposits initiated outside the platform.
