How does Open Banking work?
  • The user scans the QR code on the bill or invoice
  • The user chooses the bank for the account they wish to pay with
  • The user is asked to authenticate the payment. On a mobile device, this will normally be biometric information such as Face ID or fingerprint, or the banking app PIN
  • Once the user is authenticated, all the relevant information (transaction value, account number, etc.) is filled out automatically
  • The user taps once more to process payment
  • The invoice is paid
