Inpay believes that payments should not be limited by international boundaries. Today’s technology allows us to live and work without borders, and our daily business is often agreed across the globe in the blink of an eye. When you read the news, shop or talk with friends, it doesn’t matter where they are: you’re connected. We believe that the same idea applies to the way payments should work. Technology can now connect people through payments that are as fast and efficient as loading a page on your web browser.
We are living and working in a time of rapid change. Technology is driving huge advances in the way we transact payments, and the places where we need to do business are no longer limited by borders. Inpay believes that the firm foundations of banking are the best place to build the next generation of payment technology. Inpay sees itself as the interface between the financial technology revolution and the established banking system. Inpay’s service embraces these two worlds: a company that believes in both innovation and maturity. In a globally connected world, financial transactions made across borders have to be accessible, safe and reliable. This is true for every customer, large and small. Creating a world payment system that connects everyone by using the safest foundations possible is what Inpay was set up to achieve.
Inpay’s use of bank transfers within the secure and trusted financial infrastructure underlines our commitment and trust in the solid values of banking. Inpay also fully supports the positive delivery of the SWIFT system, of which it is a member. Inpay’s innovative system gives the world a new way of paying and a better future for both banks and the payment industry.
Inpay was founded in 2007, and is still privately owned by Jacob Tackmann Thomsen, a pioneer in online data security, who brings 25 years of experience in fraud detection in the payments world.
The companies Inpay A/S (Denmark) and Inpay AG (Switzerland) are separate private holdings belonging to Jacob Thomsen, who is also the owner of Netgroup Holdings, a 15-year old group of profitable, privately owned Danish IT and data security and hosting companies. This group has a proven track record in financial technology, including the award-winning Zecure fraud management solution.

PSD2 a revised legislation of the existing PSD1 dating 2009, regulating the payments affairs in the EU and EEA, is enabling new payments participants access customer bank information and customer payment initiation by enforcing incumbent banks to open their systems and customer information. Innovative third party providers (TPPs), in the likes of fintech, Big Tech, but also incumbents such as acquirers, processors, payment service providers and innovative banks, are seeking to capitalize on this opportunity that will be market enforced by the end of 2018.
Inpay has been represented in a leading industry group (OTA Open Transaction Alliance) from the outset of the PSD2 draft proposals in 2014, by which early in-depth technical and business understanding of the opportunities and threats has secured, and influenced and supported the group work.
The Open Transaction Alliance (OTA) is a cross-industry initiative of payment practitioners including banks, payment service providers, account information providers, payments processors, merchant and consumer groups, and other stakeholders in the European payments ecosystem. The OTA fully endorses the aim of the revised Payment Services Directive (PSD2) to foster innovation by allowing new innovative services to be developed by third parties (‘Access to account’. The OTA is convinced that this will lead to an explosion of new and creative payment services that will be of benefit to consumers, merchants, bank and non-bank service providers and the European digital economy as a whole. Inpay is uniquely positioned to capitalize on the early development and has specifically focused on the opportunities within the low value payments P2P segment and its possible role to provide instant collection and account information services to Banks, Money transfer companies and other payment participants.
Inpay is excited with the new opportunies that PSD2 and XS2A brings and are strategically perfectly positioned to make full use of the new opportunities to even better service its clients – especially Financial Institutions from outside EU.
