Plaid - Payment Initiation use case
Instant bank payments within your app
About Plaid - Payment Initiation
We have everything your business needs to move money online.
Our Payment Initiation (PIS) technology powers:
- One-off or recurring payments into accounts, like bank transfers and standing orders.
- One-off or recurring payments out of accounts, like withdrawals and refunds.
We offer these as standalone services. But they work at their best with our account information services (AIS), like KYC (Know Your Customer) and real-time balance checks.
