The open banking platform Plaid is launching its account-to-account payments. The company has recently failed its $5.3 billion Visa acquisition.
The company will combine an ecosystem of European and American payment partners like Currencycloud, Square, and Dwolla to embed Plaid’s powerful connectivity technology to bank payment processing systems.
It will leverage the companies to add account payment options at the checkout, where the funds could be transferred from their ecosystem partners.
Plaid said that companies will save a lot of money on credit card fees as account-based payments would be the center shift in digital wallet payments.
