Spanish neobank Bnext enlists Rapyd for Latin American expansion

Source: Rapyd

Rapyd, a global Fintech as a Service company, today announced a deal with Bnext, Spain's first mobile neo-bank for cash collection with plans to expand services across Latin America.

The partnership will allow Bnext customers to make cash deposits to their accounts in 30,000 locations in the country and will expand to interbank deposits later via Rapyd’s global payments network.

Rapyd’s platform will allow cash collection using their payments infrastructure, where it maintains full visibility of where the money came from. The cash deposits can be easily made at all Rapyd Point of Sale systems throughout Mexico.

“Rapyd is well-suited to support Bnext as they continue to expand their operations and active users in Mexico and Latin America given the multi-country reach of our network. One differentiator of our partnership program is speed to market, we’re proud that our first service option with Bnext was deployed in less than a month," said Sarel Tal, VP EMEA for Rapyd. “ This is a powerful partnership in one of the most promising markets for banking services in Latin America, and we are thrilled with the opportunity to improve payment experiences for Bnext’s customers in Mexico."

Rapyd's global payment network gives growing cross-border businesses that need to deploy a variety of payment methods the ability to quickly and easily offer unique local payment methods that consumers transact with every day. Leveraging the Rapyd platform allows Bnext to rapidly expand across different geographies without having to integrate complex solutions, a costly and resource-intensive effort that typically requires the integration of several different payment systems and vendor technologies as they continue their expansion across multiple countries.

“Mexico is the first country in our international expansion strategy, and we needed to partner with a company that offered the payment service locally and had a global presence and support for expansion to additional countries,” said Cristian Huertas, Country Manager Mexico for Bnext. “Thanks to our partnership with Rapyd, Bnext will be able to offer our customers a better and more reliable experience through a single API, a single contract, and a single reconciliation.”
