    Open Payments for All

Open Payments Ecosytem – Project

Welcome to the future of payments.

For too long, businesses in all sectors have accepted the limitations of one-size-fits-all payments;
forced to accept inefficiencies, high cost and the inflexibility of off-the-shelf solutions.

With the cost of building bespoke solutions prohibitive, many innovative ideas,
embryonic businesses and niche solutions just can’t get off the ground.

The OPE project was born to address these limitations and to provide the tools, the knowledge,
the capability directly to the developer community to create and market
innovative payment solutions that are shaped perfectly to the needs of their customers.

What is the OPE?

Innovative EU-funded project

The Open Payments Ecosystem is an innovative EU-funded project that will provide the capability for organisations, developers and banks to deliver enhanced, more efficient payments solutions designed to fit the exact requirements of their customers, whatever their needs. This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 666363.

Payment-Related Services

The OPE will enable the global community of software developers to write payment applications, and enable any bank to plug-in payment-related services in support of them. Programme Managers (Banks and other payment institutions) will use the OPE to provide payment programmes using the applications linked to the services to their business customers and consumers.
