VibePay is part of Vibe Group Holdings and recently announced an investment from Candy Ventures – Nick Candy’s private investment fund.

The FCA authorisation allows to provide Payment Initiation Services and Account Information Services.

VibePay will also be introducing a B2B solution, allowing consumers to pay direct from their bank when they’re shopping online.
