Auriga has been certified to offer its MyBank payment services to purchasers’ banks (Validation Service) and merchants’ banks (Routing Service).
What is MyBank?
MyBank leverages SEPA related instruments and investments to provide an online solution for harmonised payments across Europe.
Launched by EBA CLEARING, MyBank is a new online payment method that provides an alternative to credit cards and Paypal, to be used for purchasing products and services on the Internet and via mobile channels.
It allows a customer to obtain a real time authorisation for the transfer of funds from their own bank account to an online business’s bank account using a SEPA Credit Transfer, securely, easily and immediately. SEPA Direct Debit will be available soon, and the consumer will be able to choose either option.
MyBank works very simply for consumers, who upon selecting the MyBank payment method will be redirected to their own bank’s online banking website (assuming it subscribes to the service). From there they will be able to execute the payment in a familiar and trusted environment.
Once the purchaser has made the payment, the merchant receives confirmation of payment authorization from the bank in real time.
Auriga has developed its own MyBank solution, which offers banks an array of additional features and services that facilitate ease of implementation and management.
