Innovative open banking is transforming the iGaming landscape

The iGaming industry operates at a scale where subtle changes lead to significant gains, especially with payments. Transaction volumes are high, and competition is fierce, making iGaming an industry that is often a proving ground for new technologies, including open banking in iGaming.

One such innovation that has taken the industry by storm is account-to-account (A2A) payments, an iGaming open banking solution. By depositing and withdrawing funds directly between accounts, without the many intermediaries typical with cards, online betting and gaming operators can realise a significant reduction in processing costs. The consumer experience is fast and slick, and account verification helps meet operators' Know-Your-Customer (KYC) obligations, representing a true iGaming payment innovation.

Payments shouldn't feel like a spin of the wheel.

At Yaspa, we work with regulated companies dealing with massive volumes of transactions of different values, especially for our open banking payments in iGaming. By rolling bank-approved payments, account verification, and corporate accounts into one simple integration, using Yaspa’s instant bank payments makes receiving deposits, enabling withdrawals and managing your funds easy, all while reducing fraud.

Frictionless deposits and withdrawals

Slow page loads and confusing deposit processes are a thing of the past with instant banking in iGaming. Yaspa’s UX-optimised payment journeys are built with your customer in mind, eliminating friction and boosting your conversion rates by letting users make deposits quickly and directly from their bank accounts. There’s no need for players to enter fiddly card information or impossible-to-remember passwords. This lightens the operational burden for operators by reducing pressure on support teams, as more transactions are completed with no issues, showcasing the power of iGaming open banking solutions.

Our closed-loop payments also enable you to initiate payouts while benefiting from competitively low processing fees, providing a seamless customer experience while driving costs down - a prime example of iGaming payment innovation.

Deposits and withdrawals via Yaspa move instantly between you and your players, as open banking technology lets us ‘push’ money directly between accounts. There are no other intermediaries in a Yaspa transaction - so the process is intrinsically faster, simpler and more cost-effective than other payment methods, like debit cards.

Agile money management

Yaspa, iGaming open banking provider, makes it easier than ever for you to receive, store and reconcile payments. Open one of our versatile corporate accounts to accept payments into an account, combining high security with ease of access.

Keep funds safe here for as long as you need to before remitting them back to your business via the dashboard functionality through our agile and secure iGaming open banking solution. 

The dashboard acts as your very own mission control for payments. In addition to managing your (optional) corporate account, you can manually pay money out to customers, make account verification requests, and monitor and transact with verified customers.
