Transactive Systems, an international instant payments provider, has been authorised by the Financial Conduct Authority as an Electronic Money Institution to issue e-money.

Businesses using its services can send and receive payments across the EU in seconds and at a fraction of the cost of traditional banking services. The company has an existing and separate e-money license with the central bank of the Republic of Lithuania, the Bank of Lithuania.

Transactive Systems offers UK Faster Payments, SEPA Credit and Debit Transfer Payments, SEPA Instant, Virtual Bank Accounts and Direct Debits. Its system is designed for businesses serving payroll, operating in the gig economy, online lending, affiliate marketing and other financial technology businesses. Transactive Systems provides an open API, meaning that payments functionality can be easily added to a third-party service.
