TrueLayer joins Stripe's Payment Element for Open Banking payments

Thursday 19 October 2023 12:36 CET | News

UK-based TrueLayer has become the first European Open Banking payment option to be integrated into Stripe's Payment Element.


This integration enables Stripe merchants operating in the United Kingdom and the European Union to offer TrueLayer as a payment method to their customers. The Stripe Payment Element is a user interface component that can be embedded on checkout pages and is utilised by numerous merchants worldwide. It facilitates the display of relevant payment options for customers and the collection of necessary transaction information. 

This development allows merchants to seamlessly incorporate TrueLayer's Open Banking payment option into the Stripe checkout process. In essence, Stripe users now have the option to choose secure Open Banking payments as an alternative to conventional card payments, which often incur high interchange fees. 

When consumers opt for Open Banking payments during checkout, they are redirected to TrueLayer's payment page. Here, they securely confirm their payment either through their banking app or online banking platform. TrueLayer's payment page streamlines the process for businesses to accept instant bank payments without the need to establish or maintain their payment gateway.
