CreditClick and Hanseatic Bank team on e-commerce payments in Germany

Avatar

Published

on

CreditClick and Hanseatic Bank have launched a new payment method in the e-commerce sector. As of now, it will be possible for online retailers in Germany to accept transactions through CreditClick.

CreditClick is a new payment method that enables retailers to provide their customers with a credit line during the payment process. Consumers can then use this credit to purchase the products of their choice. They simply select CreditClick during the checkout process and enter their data to set up an account. This is followed by a credit check before the loan can be approved. The entire process from the online credit request to approval takes just a few minutes. If approved, the online purchase can be continued immediately. CreditClick can be used by payment service providers and various retailers in both the Netherlands and Germany.

Payment in instalments

CreditClick enables customers to obtain a temporary loan for a predefined period of time to finance the purchase of consumer goods. Particular emphasis is placed on transparency and repayment. Before agreeing to the loan, customers have clear insight into the cost of the loan and how many instalments it will take to pay it back. Repayments are made by direct debit. Thanks to CreditClick, European lenders can serve new and existing customers in the area of e-commerce. In Germany, Hanseatic Bank is responsible for the financing process from acceptance through to settlement.

The CreditClick platform was developed based on state-of-the-art technologies to enable payment service providers and affiliated retailers to easily integrate it into online shops. With CreditClick, it takes just a few days rather than weeks or months. Furthermore, payment service providers can offer retailers a payment method that does not entail extra costs.

Extra payment option

“We are extremely proud to announce the launch of CreditClick in Germany together with our partner Hanseatic Bank. This confirms our strategy of becoming a pan-European payment method. By accepting CreditClick as a new payment method, every online retailer can offer an extra payment option”, comments Jeroen Bosch van Rosenthal, CEO of CreditClick.

Gerrit Meier, Director of Payment & Financing Business of Hanseatic Bank, states: “We highly appreciate the cooperation with our Dutch partner CreditClick. They combine start up spirit with a high degree of professionalism and customer centricity. Thus, they perfectly fit into our commercial strategy for the ecommerce market.”

Cyberis receives CBEST approval from the Bank of England

Published

Cyberis has announced that it is now an approved Penetration Testing provider under the Bank of England (BoE)’s CBEST scheme. CBEST is a framework run by the Bank of England through the industry body CREST that delivers controlled, bespoke, intelligence-led cyber security tests, to increase the resiliency of financial services organisations against cyber attacks.

Regulators such as the Prudential Regulation Authority (PRA) and Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), have integrated the CBEST security assessment framework into their supervisory strategies.

The key differentiator from other security testing regimes is its intelligence-led approach. CBEST is designed to mimic the latest real-world actions of cyber attackers’ intent on compromising an organisation’s important business services (IBS) and disrupting the technology assets, people and processes supporting those services.

“Achieving CBEST accreditation from the Bank of England is a strong endorsement of our commitment to delivering intelligence-led penetration testing and the skills and experience of our team,” said Gemma Moore, director at Cyberis. “The CBEST scheme plays a major role in increasing the resilience of the UK financial services sector and has become the benchmark for other schemes across different industries and countries.”

Private equity firms Astord and Bridgepoint have agreed a deal to acquire Irish-headquartered regtech provider Fenergo.

Fenergo’s client lifecycle management software helps financial services firms with everything from initial onboarding to KYC/AML and regulatory compliance, to data management.

The firm claims 26 of the top 50 FS firms worldwide as clients, including big names such as ICBC Standard Bank, Santander, Mizuho, ABN Amro and BNP Paribas

Fenergo currently employs over 850 people and has offices in North America, the UK, Poland, Spain, South Africa, Asia Pacific, and the UAE. It posted revenues of $107 million in full-year revenues in March, a 17% uplift on the prior year.

ABN Amro joined an $80 million funding round in Fenergo in February last year, which at the time valued the firm at about $800 million.

Financial terms of the transaction with Astord and Bridgepoint were not disclosed.
