Why integrate Connect & Pay?

Connect & Pay allows clients to accelerate and automate the reconciliation and payment processes, to optimize their working capital, to eliminate human errors and to mitigate the risk of internal payment fraud.
 
The Connect & Pay API (Application Programming Interface) gives users the chance to proceed instant payments towards their clients using their own software system. Additionally, the tool accelerates the delivery process by reconciling the incoming payments on the KBC-accounts directly with the internal production and delivery processes. The direct impact on optimizing the working capital may also be one of the reasons for using Connect & Pay. Based on the real-time account information, the follow-up on outstanding balances can be done in a much more efficient way. By enabling the client to have a real-time view on the incoming and outgoing payments and the balances in the KBC accounts, treasury management can be made future proof. 

Users of Connect & Pay do not need a licence under PSD2.

How does it work?
