TrueLayer, Jaja Finance to enable card repayments

Tuesday 11 June 2024 14:55 CET | News

UK-based Open Banking payments network TrueLayer has partnered with digital lender Jaja Finance to enable credit card repayments.


As part of the partnership, Jaja Finance will leverage the Open Banking payments network’s solution to extend instant payins. This will allow customers to make one-off credit card repayments directly from their bank account.

The new functionality is already available on Jaja Finance’s Vanta Credit Card and its partner brands, including Asda Money Credit Card and Asda Money Select Credit Card, all of which are linked to Asda’s rewards programme.

As emphasised in the official press release, these types of credit repayments are more customer-centric and intuitive, as they feature auto-populating fields that make it unnecessary for the customer to input data manually. 

What is more, the payment is reportedly linked to the customer’s bank app. Because the settlement is instant, the repayments are immediately visible in the customer’s bank account. Given its transparency, this feature makes it easy for users to manage their finances.

When discussing the partnership, a representative from TrueLayer explained that Open Banking-powered payments are emerging as a more convenient solution than legacy repayment options as they easily integrate into the customer journey.
