100 years ago people got paid in cash. They had cash in their pocket and paid for merchandise in cash at their local store. Cash was king. Payments were easy.
Today people receive their salary in their bank account. Merchants keep their money in their bank account. People shop online.
So how come it’s so complicated to pay straight from your bank account?
In 2008 we decided to do something about this. It’s your money, your account, you should be able to pay from it in a simple way - just as you can with cash in your pocket. And for the merchant, it should be just as easy to receive money when selling as it should be to send money when refunding the customer. Nobody wants the cash economy to come back - but we all want the simplicity of it.
Now, we’re confident that we have the solution.
