The power of neighbours

Payments company Ordo has collaborated with a leading enterprise connectivity platform Yapily to power Ordo’s new payments service. The platform, which launched at the beginning of April and provides users with simple, swift and secure invoicing, tracking and payments, has launched with its Neighbour2Neighbour initiative - helping small businesses, volunteers and their neighbours during the COVID-19 crisis.

Neighbour2Neighbour initiative supports volunteers, friends or family who are running errands, such as collecting and paying for shopping or essential items, on behalf of critical workers and those self-isolating who are unable to make it to the shops themselves.

Neighbour2Neighbour initiative ensures volunteers can instantly request and receive payments digitally from those who have received help. Through its secure and scalable open banking API, Yapily enables Ordo to access its users’ account information and initiate payments from their bank accounts, using only an email address or mobile number. Yapily connects to their clients’ bank accounts, allowing them to focus on delivering faster access to financial services, while Yapily manages the seamless connectivity behind the scenes.

We spoke to Fliss Berridge, Director at Ordo, and Matt Cockayne, CCO at Yapily, about this inspiring initiative.
