The strategic partnership with Numeral aims to distribute these services more efficiently to customers.


The partnership facilitates joint customers' access to BNP Paribas' services through Numeral's single API and dashboard, streamlining integration with fintechs' modern architectures. This integration results in faster time-to-market, reduced maintenance costs, and a future-proof payment infrastructure for payment companies, courtesy of BNP Paribas' extensive local payment systems coverage.

Representatives of Numeral highlighted banks' critical role in fintechs' success, as they provide access to essential services such as payment schemes and accounts. Partnering with BNP Paribas grants joint customers access to a wide range of services and expertise necessary for scaling in Europe.

A symbiotic relationship

Through this partnership, joint clients gain access to SEPA, including SEPA instant, as well as Polish, Nordic, and Swiss payment schemes. They can also access their BNP Paribas account information in real-time and automate treasury payments to optimize safeguarding operations.
