Swedish instant payments firm, Brite Payments, will launch its Pay by Bank account-to-account payment solution on e-commerce platform Shopware

The integration aims for consumers to experience the benefits of Open Banking-powered payments, enabling Shopware customers to make instant payments directly from their bank account. 

Enabled for businesses across Europe, the highly secure, cost-effective payments are facilitated through the Brite Instant Payments Network (Brite IPN), a proprietary network that leverages Europe’s open banking infrastructure. 

The result is a complete, out-of-the-box solution that Shopware merchants can conveniently access through a Shopware 6-compatible plugin.

Luke Trayfoot, Chief Commercial Officer of Brite Payments, said: “Shopware is a market leader in Germany, trusted by leading brands, and we’re excited to be able to offer them our intuitive instant payments solution. 

“Open banking-based payments offer huge potential, but we recognised early on that there was an appetite from merchants for more complete, easy-to-integrate solutions that reduce operational complexity as well as benefit their bottom line. Now, through our Shopware partnership, they have a simple way to activate Brite and see the impact on their business.”

Shopware is one of Europe’s largest open-source e-commerce platforms, serving more than 45,000 merchants. Shopware has a particularly strong presence in Germany, where Brite recently launched Brite Instant Payments, with its footprint expanding across Benelux and the Nordic countries. 

New research from Brite Payments reveals that two-thirds (67%) of Germans are familiar with Pay by Bank, with more than one-third (36%) of 18-29 year-olds already using the payment method either daily or weekly. 

Furthermore, four in 10 Germans state they are willing to try new forms of online payment, indicating considerable potential in Shopware’s largest market

Alexey Pronin, General Manager EMEA of Shopware, added: “We’re thrilled to welcome Brite Payments as a Gold Technology Partner and to expand the range of convenient, end-user-focused payment solutions available to our growing base of e-commerce merchants.

“Shopware is committed to giving merchants the variety of tools they need to succeed in the fast-changing world of online commerce – Brite Instant Payments is a powerful addition to that toolkit, representing a modern approach to Pay by Bank that puts customer experience at the forefront.”
