The partnership will allow all SEQR users to link their bank accounts to the Seamless mobile payment solution, SEQR. It will also allow SEQR customers to access UK Bacs system through the GoCardless platform. In 2015, Bacs processed over six billion UK bank transactions.

The integration of GoCardless with SEQRs upcoming contactless payment service will allow anyone in the UK to connect their bank account and pay at any of the 500,000 terminals in the country that accept contactless payments.

Seamless CEO Peter Fredell said: “The cooperation with GoCardless is a breakthrough for us in the UK market, allowing SEQR users to simply and quickly connect their bank account to our platform.

“It’s highly innovative platform and modern API allowed us to easily integrate a Direct Debit solution into our service providing our UK customers with a simple way to top up their pre-paid cards.”

GoCardless vice president of marketing Nicola Anderson said: “We’re delighted to be working with Seamless, another innovative company helping drive the payment revolution.

“Both GoCardless and Seamless share the view that technology can replace legacy systems to dramatically reduce costs and increase efficiency. Working closely with leading technology providers to integrate with their systems, is just one of the reasons GoCardless has been adopted by some of the leading companies in Europe, and why we continue to grow.”
