What is AccessPay?

AccessPay is a platform that, harnessing the power of open banking, the API economy and secure financial messaging channels, integrates your back-office systems, connects your banks and financial services which allows you to route payments and achieve global cash visibility.

How long does it take to onboard AccessPay?

As a rule of thumb for UK payments, the time it takes to set up payments ranges from 24 hours to 8 weeks. For international payments, the time it takes to complete the set-up process depends on whether you’re connecting to banks via H2H (5 – 7 weeks) or SWIFT (3 – 6 months). Again, cash management depends on your choice of connection but can be achieved in 6 – 8 weeks.

Is there a limit on the number and/or value of transactions I can run through AccessPay?

There is no limit, technical or logical, on the number or value of transactions you can run through AccessPay. But there are value limits attached to specific payment schemes like Bacs and FPS.

How much does it cost to process payments with AccessPay?

There are no direct costs attached to processing payments with AccessPay. We charge a fixed yearly fee, even if the number of transactions you process through our system increases, on a one year rolling contract with no direct transaction fees. We offer free platform upgrades too.

Your bank or building society may charge their own costs for processing domestic or international payments. This often depends on how you connect to their portal e.g. via H2H or SWIFT.
