Volt integration offers IXOPAY merchants access to account-to-account payments across Europe from one connection

London, UK, 5 May 2021: Payment orchestration platform IXOPAY and Volt, the leading open payments gateway, today announced a new partnership that will give IXOPAY’s merchant clients another option to accept PSD2-compliant Open Banking payments through its payment orchestration platform.

IXOPAY is an industry leading acquirer-agnostic payment orchestration platform. With just one API, clients have access to the best payments processing options per country, intelligent routing, cascading, and unparalleled risk management function. IXOPAY’s flexible and scalable architecture also provides reconciliation and settlements, along with simplified integration of acquirers, payment service providers, and risk service providers.

By integrating with Volt, IXOPAY strengthens its payments offering, giving merchants greater flexibility and autonomy, and allowing European consumers to initiate direct payments from accounts held at more than 4,500 banks across the UK and Europe.

Volt’s open payments gateway offers merchants and PSPs seamless connectivity to Open Banking, standardising and operationalising the PSD2 API interface to a simple and single point of access.
