This new capability is useful for ecommerce and online payments in particular, where payment processing that is quick and reliable is believed to be of high importance.

TrustPay company officials commented on the announcement and advised that the Payment Initiation Service Provider licence extension is set to enable the company to provide a wider range of payment services to their customers and meet their evolving needs.

TrustPay company information and past developments

The company was founded in 2009 and it provides online payment solutions, card acquiring services, cross-border B2B services and corporate accounts, including features of the likes of API banking, virtual IBANs, as well as prepaid cards. Furthermore, TrustPay is a principal member of Visa, Mastercard, and UnionPay.

In May 2022, the company announced that it had enabled its clients to pay and receive payments from SEPA countries in an instant manner. At the time of the announcement, instant payments made up approximately 12% of all SEPA payments, and, following the constant development of the ecommerce space, their relevance grew. 

With this solution, the company was aiming to provide increased choice and flexibility with a ‘frictionless’ and real-time payment instrument, with the addition of SEPA Instant believed to be a first step towards offering an increased number of products related to real-time payments.

In March of the same year, the company partnered with BaoCompra to add Pix (a payment method for instant direct bank transfers) and Boleto (a Brazilian cash-based payment method) to its local payment methods in Brazil. Following this collaboration, TrustPay was enabled to serve its Brazil-based users, offering the various payment experience they expect alongside the possibility to opt for their favourite payment method, thus promoting customer conversion.
