  • Open Banking as a service

We are on a mission to remove the pain from payments. Comma is the UK’s first native open banking bulk payments system. Until now, paying business expenses such as payroll, bills, invoices and taxes has been a chore for business owners. Most small business have little process around making payments, and hardly any of them have access to corporate banking systems. Traditionally, this means they are left to key in bill payments and salaries manually into their bank. The process involves searching around for bank details, amounts, then copy / pasting or re-keying them into their bank account. As it’s mostly the owner or the senior manager that has access to the bank account, it’s often their time that is wasted making payments which should be used adding value to their business. Comma has created a new, simple, innovative process allowing users to bulk pay bills and salaries in a fraction of the time through the power of open banking. The user links their clients accounting system to Comma and they are able to instantly create payment runs using existing invoices. These payment runs can then be paid, in bulk, using existing business bank accounts at the click of a button.
