Empower payers by delivering payment power in your app

There are countless benefits of Request to Pay for Payment Service Providers, banks and other businesses. Increase customer engagement by empowering clients to aggregate and pay bills in your native app.

Your customers create a unique Request to Pay ID in your brand.  They then share this ID with their billers who will send all future invoices to it.  By connecting to Answer Pay SPX™ you can retrieve those messages and deliver them securely to your application.  Customers can then manage all their requests and pay using the payment methods you provide.
