Paytrail and Mastercard announce that their collaboration has reached new heights as they’re now enabling more than one million open banking payments every month, led by European open banking leader Aiia , a Mastercard company.

Through this collaboration, merchants can also offer a fully integrated solution in the checkout environment and aligns to Paytrail’s and Mastercard’s shared vision of continuously increasing consumer convenience and enhancing security.
