15 June 2023: Paris-based payment processor Score & Secure Payment (SSP) has partnered with Europe’s leading open banking platform, Tink, to enhance its payments solution across Europe.
SSP, who specialise in account-to-account payments with over 14,000 merchants in Europe, will use Tink’s Payments technology to power its new Pay by Bank option in multiple Eurozone countries including France, Germany, Italy, and Spain.
SSP merchants will be able to add Pay by Bank to their payment options in Europe in the coming weeks with the rollout already underway.
Eddy Combier, CEO of SSP, said: “Our partnership with Tink enables us to support our international expansion strategy and offer a consistent and high-performing payment experience across Europe.”
Tom Pope, SVP of Payments and Platforms at Tink, added: “This agreement is yet another sign of the progress Pay by Bank is making into European payments, spurred by merchant demand.
“We’re excited to roll this partnership out in more countries and accelerate the adoption of open banking-powered payments.”
The partnership follows on from news of a number of leading payment platforms in Europe working with Tink to offer Pay by Bank to merchants at scale. This means more and more consumers have the option of selecting Pay by Bank at checkout to make a quick, secure payment directly from their bank account. For merchants, Pay by Bank represents a simple, low-cost, and low-fraud payment method that complements their existing options.
