Clear2Pay announced the availability of a modular combined SEPA Direct Debits and SEPA Credit Transfers solution. The solution is based upon the Open Payments Framework (OPF), a library of component building blocks built entirely on a Service Oriented Architecture (SOA).

This allows banks to deploy the combined solution as well as either SDD or SCT independently. Such powerful flexibility offers banks the ability to adopt SEPA at a pace that meets their requirements. The solution, based on the fully Service Oriented Architecture Open Payments Framework (OPF) offers the following functionality: SEPA Credit Transfers, SEPA Direct Debits, EBA ‘Priority Payments Scheme’, Card Payments, PE-ACH, STEP2, TARGET2, etc. compliancy, Cost-based Routing, BIC and IBAN support, Corporate Value Added Services, Exception Handling.
