Split Payments is the world’s first open banking real-time payments platform. We have reimagined direct-entry banking to deliver Real-Time Direct Debit ™, Intelligent Clearance ™, and Consent Management ™ solutions. With Split’s comprehensive open banking API, businesses can quickly and effortlessly manage direct debits, subscription payments, and consent, while dramatically reducing dishonours and improving clearance times.

Split is your future-proof global payments partner, delivering faster payments, better collections, lower transaction costs, and total security. Since launching in January 2018, Split has secured partnerships with major banks and corporations in every industry, leading global innovation for opening banking worldwide.

Understanding the unnecessary pain that businesses experience in handling payments, Split’s Co-Founders endeavoured to build a better way. With collective experience in the travel industry, where complex one-to-many and many-to-many payment flows are standard, they gained first-hand insight into the inefficiencies and high costs of existing payment systems.

Following an extensive research and development stage, the Split application was officially launched in January 2018. Fast forward to today, and the platform has already handled more than 14 million transactions and continues to experience significant monthly growth in transaction volumes.
