Standard Chartered Launches Its Payouts-as-a-Service Solution at SFF 2022

by November 2, 2022

Standard Chartered presented its Payouts-as-a-Service (PaaS) solution on the first day of the Singapore Fintech Festival today.

Clients can integrate the bank’s PaaS APIs into their digital commerce platforms to embed and automate the transaction journey of their complex payout constructs, such as split, scheduled, conditional, or clubbed payments.

It made managing one-to-many payments seamless for all the parties involved.

Using PaaS, clients can provide transaction details in real-time and set up the parameters – such as the who, when, when, how, and how much to pay, pre-set or provided as and when necessary – which guide the bank to produce payment contracts to suit the stipulated criteria.

The single integration of PaaS eliminates the hassle of having separate payment instructions from clients or their counterparties.

The smoother pathway leads to significantly reduced payment administration overhead and time.

PaaS is available in five major e-commerce hubs across India, Malaysia, Singapore, the United Arab Emirates, and United Kingdom.

Standard Chartered claims to be the first transaction bank to introduce an API-first programmable bank-grade payouts solution.
