The Financial Supervisory Authority has formally approved EedenBull’s PSD2 extension to their E-Money Institution (EMI) license, and the FinTech is now a fully licensed PIS and AIS provider, enabling the access of data and the initiation of payments from bank accounts throughout Europe.
The Payment Services Directive 2 (PSD2) was introduced in Europe in 2018 and regulates payment services and providers in Europe. PSD2 enables open banking by allowing customers to use the services of third-party providers to access account information or initiate transactions on their behalf. PSD2 gives providers a regulated, open market to compete in, while providing customers more payment options and increased security.
Says Nicki Bisgaard, CEO of EedenBull: ‘New technologies, new regulations like PSD2 and new players entering the payments space changes forever the way consumers and businesses think about payments. At EedenBull, we’re not only embracing change, but seeking to work with our partner banks to drive change and leverage the opportunities provided. With our E-Money License extended to include the right as an Account Information Service Provider to pull data from our customers’ bank accounts and as a Payment Initiation Service Provider initiate payments directly from bank accounts, we are in a unique position to develop and launch truly unique payment services.’
EedenBull was founded in 2018 and has recently launched it’s Q Business® programme with 65 banks in the Nordics and are now expanding the platform to include full commercial cards issuing capabilities across all segments from small business to large corporates and across all B2B spend categories. EedenBull is a fully licensed and regulated e-money institution under EU/EEA legislation, AISP & PISP licenses and is uniquely also holding principal issuing licenses from Mastercard, Visa and UnionPay. The company is targeting bank partners in select markets around the world and are aiming to launch programmes in multiple regions over the coming 12-24 months.
