As for LoanStar, its technology was designed to link merchants and borrowers through a merchant network that works with several industries. LoanStar officials talked about working with Seattle Bank and revealed their intentions to help expand the bank’s reach through point-of-sale finance. Seattle Bank officials explained how LoanStar can enable its customers to accelerate the speed and convenience of point-of-sale financing while also allowing Seattle Bank to expand its reach to customers nationwide.

Finastra’s consumer lending solution

Finastra unveiled its embedded consumer lending solution in July 2022, enabling access to traditional regulated lending options for consumers at point-of-sale (POS). For end consumers, Finastra Embedded Consumer Lending aims to make the buying process as frictionless as possible, providing more options to consumers and an alternative to the Buy Now, Pay Later approach, which is often not applicable to high-value purchases. 

For merchants, the BaaS platform provides access to lenders and their specific products. For financial institutions, Finastra Embedded Consumer Lending offers access to a marketplace of distributors and merchants to distribute their banking products. 

Finastra’s Embedded Consumer Lending exposes APIs on Finastra’s open platform with which third-party distributors such as LoanStar Technologies may integrate. LoanStar provides the necessary technology to connect lenders to borrowers, creating POS consumer loans through their merchant network in numerous verticals.
