Speaking on the launch, Vocalink CEO Gregor Dobbie comments: “Now more than ever, people and businesses need to be able to rely on the payments network for speed, convenience, and security – not just in the UK but around the world.

“The launch of our next generation PayPort+ service, which we built in collaboration with Form3, is a part of our multi-rail strategy to enhance payment flows for our customers and modernise payments for everyone.”

PayPort was launched in 2016 to offer financial institutions, large and small, connectivity into the UK Faster Payments network. Through this next generation of PayPort+ these institutions will benefit from flexible connectivity options, including MQ, Restful APIs, and Microservices. 

PayPort+ is currently live with two UK financial institutions, including Nationwide Building Society, processing real-time payments into the UK Faster Payment service.
