Trustly continues UK Open Banking expansion with Betway launch
Payments provider Trustly has continued its UK expansion by launching Open Banking functionality with Betway.
Trustly’s Open Banking product is already in use at major UK operators including Entain, Flutter, Kindred and 888 and has been expanded to include the flagship Super Group brand.
Following the recent acquisition of UK-based Open Banking Platform Ecospend, Trustly expects accelerated growth in the region.
Trustly VP of gaming Vasilije Lekovic said: “We are very pleased to extend our long-time partnership with Betway to the UK market as well.
“The shift from traditional payment solutions, such as cards, towards account-to-account payments in the UK started last year and continues to accelerate, and we expect that user adoption rates will continue to grow.
“Trustly is in a great position to lead this growth, offering a frictionless payment experience that allows users to deposit directly from their mobile banking app using biometric verification, as well as an unparalleled reconciliation, reporting and risk management platform that will help our gaming merchants lower their operational costs,” he added.
