The Open Banking provider has announced a partnership with the UK charity, letting donors make payments to Shelter via Citizen.
Citizen helps merchants offer cardless payments easily to their customers. The platform uses Open Banking to push payments directly from customer to merchant accounts.
These payments settle instantly and cost the merchant significantly less than card-based payment methods.
Citizen also removes significant pain-points from the payer journey, offering a seamless user experience. With no need to enter card details, payments via Citizen are as simple as selecting a bank account and approving payment in their bank’s app.
“When it comes to payments, merchants struggle to balance great customer experiences with reduced fraud risk and revenue protection. With our platform, the goal is to provide a better experience for consumers, without the trade-off of higher fees and fraud that you get with other payment methods.”
