- Open banking expert Token landed a $40 million Series C investment.
- The round, which was co-led by Cota Capital and TempoCap, boosted the company’s total funding to $90 million.
- Among Token’s clients are BNP Paribas, HSBC, Mastercard, Nuvei, Paysafe, Ecommpay, Rewire, Coingate, Sonae Universo, Volt, and Vyne.
New investors Element Ventures, MissionOG, and PostFinance also pitched in, along with existing contributors Octopus Ventures, Opera Tech Ventures, and SBI Investments.
Token will use the capital to shift consumer habits from traditional payment methods like cards and wallets to open banking-enabled account-to-account (A2A) payments. Specifically, the company aims to enhance its APIs for Variable Recurring Payments and open finance functionality.
“With this investment, we will continue to expand open banking connectivity and push the boundaries of functionality beyond regulatory requirements to make A2A payments a mainstream payment method,” said Token CEO Todd Clyde.
Founded in 2016, Token is focused on driving the shift from traditional payment methods– such as cash and credit cards– towards bank payments. The company’s platform works towards this mission by enhancing open banking connectivity across Europe and supporting existing payment providers.
“Token’s A2A payments offering delivers faster and more secure payments than traditional methods while at a lower cost,” said TempoCap Investment Partner Adam Shepherd. “Token’s technology is enabling an impressive set of payment providers to offer seamless experiences for their merchant customers and, in turn, end users.”
Token’s client list includes BNP Paribas, HSBC, Mastercard, Nuvei, Paysafe, Ecommpay, Rewire, Coingate, Sonae Universo, Volt, and Vyne.
